Vans Surf Introduces New Footwear Designs by Artist and Surfer Alex Kopps

Vans Surf elevates its fall line with the Desert Chukka and the Desert Point, two brand new styles built from the ground up by the Gothic Dolphin himself, Mr. Alex Kopps.

San Francisco-based avant-garde artist, filmmaker, surfer, and scooter pilot, Alex Kopps’, brings an intricate craftsmanship of line and shape reflecting a perfect balance of embellishment for the Desert Chukka and Desert Point. Celebrated for his paintings made with gouache on wood and paper, Alex’s take on the new silhouettes make strong design references to nature, using warm earth tones and traditional textiles in premium brown leather and suede uppers.

Kopp’s classic Chukka silhouettes offer the perfect transitional fall style, complete with a brand new lightweight outsole—the UltracushWave—providing increased durability, flexibility, and support while still maintaining Vans’ classic style and comfort.

The Vans Surf Alex Kopps pack is available now online and at select Vans Surf retailers.
