A group of art students at Rio Rancho High School wants you to walk a mile in their shoes.
Over the weekend it was announced the group won the top prize in the Vans Custom Culture Art & Design Showcase. The students beat out 326 other schools in the shoe company’s nationwide shoe art design. Rio Rancho High School will receive a $10,000 grant toward the school’s art programs.
“Our group was ecstatic,” said junior Bradley Everett. “We couldn’t believe we won. It was unreal.”
The group of students designed four pairs of shoes for Vans. Initially, they made the top 20, as voted by Vans, and then won their region by a national online vote. That won them a trip to Southern California, where they got to meet with Vans executives and designers. The top prize was selected by a panel of judges, including celebrities like actress Nikki Reed and skateboard legend Tony Alva.
