As part of the Vans OTW Gallery series, Vans taps into long-time friend, San Francisco-based, Zio Ziegler, an American artist known for his paintings and large-scale outdoor murals, as a creative source for this season’s OTW Gallery Collection. With inspirations from 1990’s graffiti, skateboard graphics and naïve art, the 26-year-old bridges the accessibility of public art with a serious in-studio practice and exhibitions in Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Singapore, London, New York, Milan and San Francisco.
A Vans Authentic and Classic Slip-On burst with Zio’s characteristic color and pattern explosions, in both, an extensive palette as well as intricate drawings in black and white.
A Classic Sk8-Hi Reissue dons a sleek tonal design across khaki canvas uppers dressed up with hiking laces and a boldly Ziegler’ized heel and Sidestripe.
A special rendition of the premium OTW Gallery Tee complements the footwear offering and features an elaborate line drawing in the shape of a mighty skate truck predator and shades of blue.
The Vans x Zio Ziegler collection is available now online and at select Vans stockists.
