The Custom Culture team over at Vans dwindled down the list of somewhere around 1000 high school entries to 50 for the 2011 Vans Custom Culture Shoe Customizing Contest. Each school is represented by 4 pairs of customized Vans created by their art students in hopes of winning a trip to New York for the top 5 Finalists spots and a then Final Winner prize of $50,000 for their schools art department. Now it is your turn to help pick the best finalist school in each region: California, Northwest, Southwest, Northeast, and Southeast. 200 unique designs ranging from hand painted California surf montages, portraits, music inspired graphics, a pair with a monster hand rising out from the front to un-wearable Vans cut up and built as part of a miniature skate half-pipe complete with LED lights. The variety of designs is major. That and the 2010 Vans Custom Culture winners Rio Rancho High School in New Mexico put together a real nice showing that could definitely be the best overall set of 4 individual pairs. Do your part, vote and share with other custom shoe and art fans to vote.
