Vans Custom Culture Pack
A lotta kids love kicks, and a lotta kids have creative talent that's running wild and they just need somewhere to put it. Vans knows, and have been asking students to design shoes for them since 2010 as part of the Custom Culture Club. New Mexico's Rio Rancho High School scored 50k for their school art program after winning the national comp and will see their four designs go into production. Rio Rancho students have taken Vans' classic silhouettes, the Authentic, Classic Slip-On, Sk8-Hi and 106 Vulcanized, and inked them with chicks, guitars, spooky mushroom/skeleton ghosts and coastal vibes. Cop this collection from selected Vans and Journeys stores and the Vans online store from March. If you're a student who wants to get busy with sneaker designing, you can register for this year's comp here.
