MANILA – Vans is set to release its first Filipino-designed sneakers this week.

The limited edition pair features the winning design of Malabon-based artist Nikko Pelaez in the 2018 Vans Asia Custom Culture Competition.

It will be available at selected Vans stores this Friday, November 15.

Here’s a look:


Pelaez bested over 10,000 entries across the region in last year’s Vans Asia Custom Culture Competition with “Along with the Gods,” which is inspired by Greek mythology. 

He graduated from the University of the East’s College of Fine Arts, Architecture, and Design in 2016.
