This Vans x Mami Wata collection draws inspiration from African surf culture, key historical cultural events, and the power and positivity of surfing. From Zaire’s “Rumble in the Jungle” in 1974 and Nigeria’s “Festac’77,” this new head-to-toe collection takes the iconic, bold, and graphic imagery of these cultural events and adds a modern Vans twist, tying back to our heritage checkerboard prints. By utilizing such bold details in contrast to a micro checkerboard, this collection pays homage to the past while giving a vibrant nod to the future generations supporting African surf culture.
With an allover print featuring a man surfing on the back of a roaring lion, the Vans X Mami Wata Buttondown Shirt honors the power of African surf. Model wearing size 32 or Medium.
