Yoa Knows!: VANS Customs Culture Project

I’ve been holding on on this story for awhile, because I’ve been leaking each shoe at a time, but I wanted to write it all here as a whole.  I was approached by Vans to participate in Vans Custom Culture Project.  They selected a small number of artists from around the country to create customs for the company to display in their stores around the U.S.  I did 5 pairs for them, each very different, but tied together by a strong use of bright color.  Below is a front view of each pair, but you can see additional images on each on my website www.yoakustoms.com
