Striking Artistic Casual Shoes

Vans and Ralph Steadman Join Forces for Trippy Shoe Designs

— April 17, 2019 — Fashion
Vans and Ralph Steadman work in collaboration for a pack of sneakers for the Spring/Summer 2019 season, adoring familiar silhouettes with Steadman's signature work. The pack of footwear models features the Sk8-Hi, the Style 138, and the Slip-On model.

The artist's iconic work is featured across the uppers of all three different designs, accompanied by a series of branding details as well. The Slip-On features Vans' branding along with bee motifs over the toe, paint splattering details and black paneling at the heel. The Style 138 sits atop a white rubber midsole and features blue tonal elements across the canvas uppers with a whale motif. The Sk8-Hi sneaker design is more muted, white black and white serving as the base before it is accented with zebra stripes and motifs of the animal.
