What happens when the likes of Kristen Stewart, Peter Som and Conan O'Brien (to name a few) are asked to design their own pair of kicks? You end up with a super-rad collection of shoes, as evidenced by Vans' most recent Custom Culture Collection.The collection is one piece of a project that aims to inspire creativity and raise funds for arts in high schools. Students get to design their own Vans, with a chance to win $50,000 towards their high school arts program. To get the creative juices flowing, the slip-on maestros invited celebs, designers, and bloggers to get their DIY on and design a custom pair. The result: some insanely cool kicks. We're not so sure what's going on with Conan's masterpiece, but our faves includes Peter Som's floral-packed design and the geometrical beauties designed by Honestly WTF's Erica Coffman.
