The Vans x Mami Wata collection is inspired by African surfing culture, key historical and cultural events, and the power and positivity of the sport. This new complete collection modernizes in the purest Vans spirit the strong, emblematic and audacious images of the great events of the "Rumble in the Jungle" of 1974 in Zaire and the "Festac'77" of Nigeria with our historical checkerboard. In a contrast between strong images and micro-checkerboard, this collection celebrates the past while paying a vibrant tribute to the new generations supporting African surfing culture.
The Vans x Mami Wata Woven Shirt honors the power of African surfing with a graphic of a man surfing on the back of a roaring lion printed throughout.
Our team has set ambitious sustainability goals. All of our efforts, big or small, can have a positive impact. To obtain the VR3 Checkerboard globe logo, at least 30% of the product must consist of one or more recycled, renewable and/or regenerative materials.
