Vans introduces a special project with Andy Davis’ new venture, Ando & Friends. A well-known, San Diego-based surf artist, Andy grew up in Vans, crafting countless custom pairs over the years that have accompanied him all over the world and on many adventures. Creator of brands Free and Byrd, Davis’ latest extension, Ando & Friends, is an art-driven clothing line from Andy and his pals featuring designs that are simple and fun that capture the soulful aesthetic of riding waves. Their work also has a funky, retro vibe and often features clever, tongue-in-cheek humor. Drawing inspiration from life, travels, family, music and the ocean to name a few, Andy & Co. injected their unique aesthetic into a small collection of apparel and footwear for Vans this season, including the E-Street Surf Sider seen above.
