From the ground up

As part of their Fall 2009 Collection, Vans got together with Jermaine Rogers on a double pack. Known as one of the leaders in modern rock poster art, Jermain Rogers added his distinctive artwork to two sneakers. The artist has created work for Radiohead, The Foofighters, David Bowie, Sonic Youth and many others.

Drawing inspiration from artists such as Van Gogh, Warhol and fellow poster-artist Rick Griffin, Rogers’ signature line-art style and bold use of color turn out imagery that is mysterious, inspiring and always unique.

The pack consists of the Vans Calar and the Calar Mid. Both come with black uppers and light green accents on the sole and lining. His artwork appears on the tongue tag, the outer sole, as well as the heels of the sneakers. Certainly something to be looking out for!
