x Ralph Steadman CLASSIC SLIP-ON
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.
The OG Classic Slip-On LX, “Gonzovationist”: What is “gonzovation”, you ask? It’s an alternative conservation through the act of gonzovating; gonzovation is the protection, preservation, management, or restoration of wildlife and of natural resources to include forests, earth and water. So, naturally, a “gonzovationist” is an alternative conservationist; a person who makes sense from the nonsense. Thought up by the artist himself, “I’m A Gonzovationist” is printed across the vamp of the OG Classic Slip-On LX as well as Vans’ checkerboard side panel for good measure.
