For the latest episode of PAQ, each of the four hosts has been given a pair of classic sneakers to customize. The boys are each given a famous silhouette — Stan Smiths, Air Force 1s, Vans Slip-Ons and Converse Chuck Taylors — and have to work with a professional customizer to put their own twist on the sneaker. The final products are then judged by Alexandra Hackett, aka Miniswoosh, a menswear customizer who specializes in Nike. Speaking about the sixth episode, Elias Riadi, one of the four hosts, said “Obviously, customization and personalization is on trend right now. But we wanted to see how far we could push it in this episode.”

In previous episodes, the PAQ boys have gone grail hunting, dressed for first dates, and tried to find the best fit for less than £50 GBP (approximately $65 USD).
