DIY Nylite Project
Noah Emrich, NOVH

“Tretorn asked me to customize a pair of their classic Nylite Canvas Sneakers and sent along a bunch of goodies such as markers and dyes with the shoes to help with the process. I decided to do a black to white dip dyed fade using some of the black fabric dye they sent.

I mixed the dye and got the shoes completely wet with warm water. I then let them sit halfway submerged in the dye for a minute or two. Since the shoes were wet the dye was drawn up past the point they were submerged creating the fade to white. I let them dry over the next two days and the rinsed them out top to bottom which helped to create an even gradient.”
