Vans are a class act - truly a ‘people first company’ like they have been saying since 1966. It’s a brand built on the foundations of hard work and fun times, and they have stepped up in the biggest way to help small businesses during these tough times. The Foot The Bill program they have created is an ingenious concept that allows Vans and customers to directly support the independents that need help the most. The idea is, each chosen store designs a print that is applied to either a Classic Slip-On or Era. Customers can then access these designs via the Vans Customs platform. And the coolest part? The design only applies to the vamp (front) of the shoe, so customers can go ahead and customise the rest of the shoe to their liking and style. All proceeds from the purchase (less production and shipping costs - so the net value) goes straight to the business whose design you bought. AH-MAZING!

We are very grateful to be chosen as one of the businesses to take part in this incredible program! Our design has been applied to the Classic Slip-On because it was one of the first silhouettes we wore and sold in droves, so it has a special place in our hearts. A hand drawn pink and yellow watercolour was created as the base. These colours remind us of dreamy summer days. More to the point, they just look so lovely together! Regarding the thumbs, well, we all need a good thumbs up every now and then. It’s a confident way of letting someone know everything is great. As pam pam is about fun times, we love handing out the encouraging gesture, sharing the excellent vibes whenever and with whoever we can. If this sounds like you, then check out our design here!
