Shepard Fairey is well known for his OBEY designs and now he has used his artistic style to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. Shepard was asked by the LISA Project NYC charity to design a custom pair of slip-ons for Vans‘ Foot the Bill initiative. The Foot The Bill initiative was created to help creative communities and their extended families amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have supported @lisaprojectnyc throughout the years, and they’ve been great partners for some of my mural installations in NYC. I’m excited about the opportunities we have in the future! Right now, many nonprofits are impacted by the ripple effects of COVID-19. As such, @vans selected LISA Project NYC for the Foot the Bill project – an initiative created to assist creative communities and extended families of creators around the world during this difficult time. Using Vans’ custom platform, I worked with the LISA Project NYC to create a limited custom shoe with my “Goddess of Peace” art. Net proceeds will support LISA Project NYC’s efforts to continue to bring artists to the Lower East Side in New York. Visit the link in bio to shop and support now. Thanks for caring!~Shepard Fairey
The shoe features Shepard’s “Goddess of Fairey” graphic in a black and white design. Other detail on the kicks are the black rubber sole, white midsole panel and Vans patches on the heel.
All proceeds from the sale of this shoe, will support LISA Project NYC. You can get your feet in a pair from the Vans’ webstore for $90 USD.
