Whether it’s animal print, aztec, stripes or polka dots, I love patterns. I definitely have a thing for blog colour, but when you team that with some kind or patterned print, I think it makes for a perfect outfit!
Paying respect to the founder of the company, James Van Doren, this series of shoes, by the looks of things, will be made up of a Skate-Hi, an Era and a Slip-On. I’m not sure whether this is it though, there may be more additions to the pack, but the suede on canvas mix adds a little something extra. Out of the three we’ve been teased with, the Era is definitely my favourite but I’m guessing these won’t drop in small sizes (keeping my fingers crossed that they do though!)
Next up is the Pendleton x Vans x Nibwaakaawin for 2012 All Nations Skate Jam collaboration. All for a good cause, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this collab will go towards Nibwaakaawin’s efforts working towards motivating Native American youth through skateboarding. These will be exclusively available at the Gathering of Nations Powwow and the 2012 All Nations Skate Jam in Albuquerque. The purple based Sk8-Hi and Old Skool are my pick of the bunch but I’m not a massive fan of the slip-on as a shoe in general.
