Vans go wild

These YSL Vans-style shoes are all sorts of fabulous. Back in their hey day, Vans were quite often produced in the maddest, campest prints and colours, it all went with the punk-surf territory. But YSL aren’t the first to do a punk-luxe skate shoe – remember the Giles Deacon Bottega Venetas of 2000? Electric pink and black leopard print canvas with clutch bags to match – ah yes, I remember them well. Hermes hasn’t done skate shoes but Robert Verdi has. He gathered up armfuls of his Hermes scarves and asked Vans to custom cover their skate shoes in them. Snazzy, no?
