Vans x Active "Drop Sneakers Not Bombs"

5 07 2007

For those of you who have been awaiting the new Drop Sneakers Not Bombs Half Cabs, the wait is almost over. For those of you who have no clue what I’m talking about then here is a little insight…

An Active exclusive footwear collection – the first of many to come. A collaboration with seven of the most recognized footwear brands in skateboarding. Founded upon a hope to generate some positive energy in our little corner of the world. Indirectly shedding light on one of many world issues that we all can do our part to help remedy, by showcasing something as simple as sneakers. We trust that the work of these seven brands will inspire anyone, no matter how few, to look to affect positive change in their own way, home or abroad. A portion of the proceeds from Drop Sneakers Not Bombs will go to Invisible Children, a non-profit organization which has sprung from a captivating documentary film created by three San Diego natives. The film exposes some violent and horrible truths about a civil war in Uganda, and the way in which it is especially destroying the lives of the children of that fractured nation. Active sought the help of street artist, Shepard Fairey, to contribute to the collection’s artistic direction. We hope you enjoy the first installment of Drop Sneakers Not Bombs. Limited does not begin to describe it.

Here are the two pairs of Half Cabs that are going to be released:
