CUSTOM. SINCE BEFORE THAT WAS A THING.
Vans Customs have been a tradition since 1966, when Paul Van Doren made shoes with any fabric people brought by the shop. Today, the creativity is still in your hands.
The Old Skool, the first shoe to bear the iconic leather Sidestripe and the go-to style for every skate enthusiast, is a low-top lace-up style made with durable canvas, metal eyelets, a padded tongue and lining and Vans signature Waffle Outsole. Now they’re available on Vans Customs where they can be personalized with a custom design by Oakland, CA-based multimedia artist: Olivia Krause.
Olivia explores abstracted moments of the human experience, working in a range of different mediums including paint, bleach, and airbrush to record and erase emotions and images so that time and change are embedded into the pieces to showcase that nothing is permanent.
Pick your shoe, pick your colors and patterns, and make them yours.
