Presenting a limited edition capsule, Vans Vault and Ralph Steadman offer classic skate shoes emblazoned with the Welsh illustrator's distinctive Gonzo style - available now for registration on END. Launches
Fusing two icons from alternate fields, Vans Vault and Welsh illustrator Ralph Steadman combine their efforts to deliver a capsule collection inspired by both the skateboarding brand's rich cultural heritage and Steadman's unique and instantly recognisable graphic sensibility.
Renowned and lauded for his collaborative work with gonzo-journalist Hunter S. Thompson on 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas', as well as his cover art for Travis Scott and Quavo's 2017 album 'Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho', Steadman's work has become emblematic of a political and satirical point of view.
Rough and ready, the aesthetic values employed by the artist bring the Vans OG Sk8-Hi LX, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Style 138 LX to life with a splash of colour alongside whimsical renderings of a variety of fauna.
A vibrant trio of iconic skate sneakers embellished with a distinctive flourish of artistry, Ralph Steadman and Vans Vault deliver a capsule of footwear styles brimming with creative intent and a hefty dose of cultural capital.
