Vans, the makers of our favorite Cali-style surfer kicks, teamed up with legendary graffiti artist Claw Money to launch a limited-edition collection of shoes and clothing, which drops TODAY in stores. Hi-tops are $70, casual low kicks are $55, the tank is $26, and the socks are $8 per pair. So we had a little chat with Claw today about the collection, which features her signature tag — a brightly-colored, three-taloned paw — all over the items. “I wanted this to be NYC meets So-Cal with an urban jungle safari type of aesthetic,” the native New Yorker told us. “Sun-bleached power leopard, perfect for riding the subway or hitting the beach.”
Ooooooh, power leopard! It sounds like a color we’d like to own more of. If we ever had the chance to make up a color out of thin air like Claw did, we’d probably put the word power in front of it, too. Power black. Power green. Power polka dots. Power periwinkle … we’re stopping before we get carried away.
