x Ralph Steadman SKATE DECK

Vault by Vans

210000199488

28129194410058

$85.00

The latest collaborative project from Vault by Vans sees Vans’ premium imprint partner with legendary artist Ralph Steadman and conservationist organization WildAid, on a collection designed to raise awareness about endangered species threatened by extinction.

A range of footwear, apparel, and skate decks, created with the most sustainable materials available, feature illustrations in Steadman’s signature, splatter heavy style that were previously contributed to filmmaker/writer Ceri Levy’s published books on the subject, Critical Critters, Extinct Boids, and Nextinction.

Vans Deck featuring the Black Rhino: Once there were 850,000 black rhinos roaming the planet, but human encroachment, habitat change for agricultural purposes, and poaching for rhino horns saw their numbers dwindle to next to nothing. Chinese medicine uses the horn for various ailments, and recently in Vietnam it was alleged to be a cure for cancer—creating a whole new market (and problem). Although conservation has helped the black rhino’s numbers rise to around 5,000, education is imperative and awareness campaigns can teach people the truth about rhinos and their horns.
