Robert Williams may not ring a bell right away, but his artwork has filled galleries for decades. And to coincide with upcoming gallery show at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York City on October 31, he’s paired with DQM and Vans Vault on a very limited run of Eras. The video follows Williams’ creative process on this sneaker, which involves going way further than designing a color palette and throwing his logo on it.
The 13-pair run will release on Halloween, thesame day as the art show, only at Dave’s Quality Meat. All 13 are numbered 1-13 and autographed by the artist. From the video we learn the construction process of Vans as well, which includes some special attention being paid to the quality of the craftsmanship and detail in a way we rarely see.
