UBIQ and Vans have enlisted the artistic sensibilities of the “Godfather of Street Art,” Ron English, for their second collaboration. Applying his signature, subversive “POPaganda” aesthetic to the Era LX and Sk8-Hi LX silhouettes, English adorns the canvas uppers with his “Camo Deer” illustration featuring a deer covered in hunting camouflage, thus subverting the relationship between the hunter and the hunted. The illustration continues to the insole, as well as being depicted in its entirety on the shoe box. Available in-store and online at UBIQ for $85 USD for the Era LX and $90 USD for the Sk8-Hi LX, head over to the collaboration’s mini-website for behind-the-scenes photos of UBIQ’s visit to English’s studio, as well as a video interview with the artist himself.
