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.
Featuring an engineered four way stretch that has the perfect blend and weight of stretch material to perform in the water and keep its shape when worn out of the water, the Vans X Mami Wata The Daily 18” Boardshort allows a full range of motion to move with you when it counts. Combining this durability with all-day comfort and a unique graphic aesthetic, this vibrant boardshort honors the power of African surf. Model wearing size 32 or Medium.
