GON 2011 Vans x Pendleton
Check out this special collaboration that Vans did with Nibwaakaawin for the Gathering of Nations Powwow and All Nations Skate Jam.
These shoes premiered last year at ANSJ 2010 and sold out within hours.
For the 2011 event, Vans created several limited edition SK8-HIs, Classic Slip-Ons and Chukka Lows using Pendleton fabrics. Proceeds from the sale of the sneakers will go towards Nibwaakaawin’s fundraising efforts – a Native non-profit organization whose goal is to empower Native youth through skateboarding.
The ANSJ website stated, "A limited selection of styles and sizes from the original runs, (Skate Jam and Indian Summer 2010) is still available for purchase. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order a pair."
