Shoes are made for walking, but in the Vans Custom Culture Competition, feet step aside. The competition challenges high school students to create original designs from blank canvas shoes, and the ones they've come up with certainly push creative boundaries. The students were tasked with designing two pairs of shoes based on the themes “Local Flavor” and “Off the Wall.” Vans has narrowed the down from 500 to 50, and students at the Idaho Fine Arts Academy in Eagle, Idaho, are among the semifinalists in the running to win $75,000 for their school art program.

Online voting on the Vans website (click the competition link above) continues through Friday, May 4, at which point the 50 semifinalists will be narrowed down to five. Once the final five are determined, one will be declared the winner. Four runner-up schools will each receive $10,000 for their art programs, along with a gift from Vans.

Megan Klempa, the Vans Custom Culture Program Manager, said that the program is designed to reinforce Vans’ commitment to artistic expression and to inspire kids to lead creative lives.
