STOLEN!!! Vans x Nibwaakaawin x Pendleton for All Nations Skate Jam (Surplus Stock Stolen)

info from Chris at OTW:

As you know, last week we previewed and promoted the special Vans Classics shoes Steve Van Doren created for the Native nonprofit’s Gathering of Nations/All Nations Skate Jam weekend. The event was a success and the Nibwaakaawin sold most of their stock but the surplus was stolen Sunday night.  The trailer containing $10,000 dollars worth of shoes was swiped from the Albuquerque hotel they were staying at.

Please refer to the local media coverage below for more information. If you see any of these custom Vans on the marketplace please contact authorities and the Nibwaakaawin ( If you can share this information amongst your networks, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for all of your help.

(Personal note to the thieves:  You’re better off just returning, or abandoning the trailer, and the goods somewhere, because you won’t be able to make a dime off of these.  They’re highly recognizable, especially in the local area.  I’m sure you didn’t know what you were stealing, but this time karma caught up with you.  Good luck dumb asses!)
