Creating Kyrie Irving’s Next Custom Sneaker: Bandulu
Aug 15 2019
Pat 'Bandulu' Peltier made a name for himself by transforming vintage clothing and sportswear into unique, one of a kind garments with hand-sewn paint splatters - a trademark of his style. His work has caught the attention of celebrities and athletes alike, with clients including Drake, Serena Williams, 2 Chainz and more.

Following sneaker collaborations with Converse and the Boston Celtics, Bandulu received his biggest collaboration to date - creating a sneaker with Nike and NBA player Kyrie Irving for his 5 series shoe. VICE profiles Bandulu's story and the making of his customized Kyrie Irving 5 sneaker, finishing up as he unboxes to see the final pair in person for the first time.
