Vans has teamed up with Damien Hirst and Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort on a collection featuring the works of the renowned artist on three Sk8-His and three Slip-Ons. The project is meant to celebrate art as well as Vans’ commitment to inspiring nonconformists.
“It’s fabulous to be collaborating with Palms and Vans on this project,” says Hirst. “I’ve always loved Vans and the artwork works brilliantly on these shoes. I can’t wait for people to see them. It’s amazing for an artist to have the sort of freedom Palms and Vans have given me.”
The collection features Hirst’s most recognizable works: spots, butterflies, spin paintings and skull, each decorating the two classic Vans silhouettes.
The Damien Hirst x Vans Vault collection releases on December 6th exclusively at the Vault by Vans store in New York City and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Check out all six pairs below.
