FRE Customs is joining the many other brand's who've followed Balenciaga's steps and transformed the Fratka shopping bag into a stylish garment, with its iteration being an exclusive pair of custom IKEA sneakers.
To create the obscurely designed shoes, FRE Customs used a pair of Nike Air Force 1s, which have a bulky build that's instantly recognizable. While the sneakers themselves are totally white, the overlaying of the Fratka bag makes them a bright hue of blue. In addition, the bag adds some textural diversity -- with its rough plastic contrasting vividly with the sleek leather of the Air Force 1s.
On the toes and tongues of the IKEA sneakers, the Swedish furniture giant's name is included in yellow.
