First Look: Custom Vans by SBTG for Kadir Warriors, Part 3

One of the most iconic sneaker customizers in the industry that continues to create timeless and distinct designs, Mr. SBTG has collaborated once again with the Kadir Warriors for another collection of waffle goodness comprised of Slip-Ons and Authentics -- the silos of choice for the collective.

If you haven't seen the past collaboration themed "Feline Fury", you can learn more about the previous collection here and experience Mr. SBTG's craftsmanship for yourself. No detail is overlooked as the signature SBTG treatment includes custom tongue labels, insoles, and boxes. The foundational models for this collection start with a premium Vault silo and only gets better after the custom treatment.

Pre-orders for the collection will be available soon at

Through conversations we had together they decided to work on a black, teal, and pink colorway for each model with white bones. The panels are cloaked in a 1-tone Tiger stripe pattern on the side panels and embellished with their Kadir Warrior (Kwar) motif seen throughout the shoe -- both on the front panel and heels. 


Under the bloodline of the late Mr. Kadir Bin Kamari, a group of his grandchildren bonded as a crew of Vans loving enthusiasts. Calling themselves as Warriors of Kadir, they started out as a humble crew minding their own biz but soon their positive energy and love spread globally through their social media networks.

Reconnecting with 3 of the Warriors and sharing the same love for Vans, SBTG started to create custom products based on their strong family bond with intention of spreading their values and positive energy.
