School graduations have been among the long-list of events affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. And while some students have received their diplomas virtually or in make-shift ceremonies, they’ve missed out on the full milestone-achieving experience. Vans, however, is acknowledging the importance of graduation with celebratory, one-of-a-kind options for the Class of 2020 on its Vans Customs platform.
Customization has been a tradition of the California institution since 1966, when founder Paul Van Doren created footwear from the various fabrics customers brought to his shop. For a limited time, Class of 2020 graduates can indulge in this spirit by adding school colors, cap graphics, and graffiti-style “Class of 2020” prints across numerous Vans icons – including the Authentic, Slip-On, Sk8-Hi, Era and Old Skool.
In addition to commemorative changes to its Customs program, Vans is hosting a virtual graduation on June 19th. The free event, which will broadcast on the company’s YouTube channel, will be a 90-minute show consisting of an array of curated programming for the Class of 2020. Guests will include Steve Van Doren, Tony Hawk, Jay Howell, and Robin Eisenberg, as well as a special musical artist, whom will be announced on June 10th.
Head over to Vans.com right now to create a special “Class of 2020” pair for yourself or a graduate in your life.
