Win A Pair Of Customized Kicks From Crybaby Presents & Vans



vans-cactus-300To call us sneaker freaks would be an understatement. We've likely got more athletic-inspired footwear lining our closet floors than we'd like to admit. Why? Well, we're big proponents of comfort here at R29, and we can't seem to hit up a shoe store without spotting a pair of Vans that must come home and be a part of the collection.

So, imagine our excitment when we heard that the iconic L.A.-based label was teaming up with IAMSOUND and homegrown gals (and 30 Under 30 honorees) Dakota Solt and Lisa Ziven of Crybaby Presents! For the shoe's Classics line, the designers decorated the famous footwear with flowers, bananas, and our personal fave — Cali-appropriate cacti!

Not only is Vans celebrating the duo with a must-hit shindig (which you're invited to, BTW!) it's also giving away a pair of one-of-a-kind sneakers created by the lovely ladies. Enter to win your set by leaving a comment below, telling us about your most memorable sneaker moment. While only one reader will walk away with the stellar set of sneaks, everyone's a winner at Saturday evening's event. Come for the viewing of the awesome collection, stay for the Vans-inspired Minx nail prints, performances by Yacht And Papa, and more Vans x Crybaby treats. We'll most def see you there.

When: Saturday, July 7, 8 p.m. to midnight.
Where: The Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Boulevard (at Roselake Avenue); 213-389-3856.
RSVP: Here (Guests must be 21+!)
