Vans x Santigold collaboration

Straight out of Brooklyn, Santi White -- better known today as Santigold -- has become a unique and inspiring figure on today's musical landscape.

With her eclectic sound, incredible sense of style and love for Vans, it was too good to be true when Vans and Santigold joined forces for a special February 2011 shoe release.

Santigold teamed up with Vans designers to create a shoe of her very own. Working with the new Tosha Hi silhouette and Santi's personal design aesthetic, the limited Vans x Santigold collaboration features premium perforated full grain leather, faux gold chain accents. The look becomes complete with a custom SG gold pin created with the trained eye of jewelery designer Jules Kim of Bijules.

The shoe release will hit stores February 1.

In 2008, Santigold's eponymous album established her, internationally, as one of the most exciting and fearless artists to emerge in the last decade. The album was widely praised for its genre-defying sound and instantly memorable melodies and was on best of 2008 top 10 lists across the globe.

Today, Santigold is currently at work on her highly anticipated new album due out in 2011.
