Wild Pair: Claw Money x Vans summer collaboration

July 8, 2010 |  8:00 am



New York-based graffiti artist turned fashion designer Claw Money has teamed up with Vans to do a line of shoes and accessories for their girl’s line.

The shoes (a high-top and low-top pair), socks and tank tops just hit stores and surprisingly aren't scrawled with the Clawaccessories'80s-inspired graffiti and bright colors the artist uses in her own collection, but rather dark, animal-print pieces informed by Southern California’s sun-bleached surfers and thriving punk scene.

The collection is festooned in a faded animal print and black canvas, so the shoes aren’t loud and the tank tops are actually really wearable.

The Claw Money x Vans Girls line is in stores and at now and ranges from $8 for socks to $70 for the high-top “Hadley” sneaker
