Flash Garments Recalls Designing Swerve Strickland’s Shoe

Lee South Samoa Joe vs Swerve Strickland St. Louis, MO AEW Dynasty April 22, 2024

Flash Garments recently appeared on an episode of the Wrestling With Freddie podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including designing AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland’s own signature shoe.

Garments said, “The origin of this shoe. When we first started talking about it, it was a while ago.”“It was turnbuckles, the material of green. I wanted pieces of me and him in it. When I was designing it, the majority of the shoe was all about Swerve and his style and colors he likes to wear and his military background. Then you have the flashiness, with my name Flash Garmets, with the gator-esque, vegan, and the Garments logo and Swerve logo.”

“Mache was the guy who put it all together and simplified my design. He’s the designer who put it all together. He’s a shoe customizer and ended up making his whole silhouette. I reached out and said ‘it would be dope if we did it together.’ I told him about Swerve. He started seeing him come up.”
