Skechers Teams with Renowned Artist

The Vexx collab features signature doodles.

Skechers has teamed with Vexx, a young artist who has captured the digital universe, galleries, and museums. In the latest installment of its Visual Artist Series, Skechers has teamed with Vexx, a young artist who has captured the digital universe, galleries, and museums. Skechers x Vexx features his signature doodles and vibrant characters on a capsule collection of sneakers, apparel, and accessories for men and women.

“At just 24, Vexx has gone from strength to strength: teen prodigy, social media icon, creative force, visionary of digital media’s next generation,” says Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “His striking talent and captivating, inimitable designs have attracted everyone from collectors and dealers to galleries, auction houses, and museums. Featured on our top-selling sneakers, this curated collection is a new way for Vexx fans to live, breathe, and walk in his imagination. We know these will resonate, like every medium he touches.”

“It’s been a priority for me to create without compromise, and Skechers celebrates that philosophy,” Vexx says. “They collaborate with diverse artists and give them the freedom to explore. It’s unique for a brand of this size to let independents drive their collections in new directions. Footwear as a canvas is interesting when you think of people from all walks of life walking in your art. That’s exhilarating and inspiring.”

Vexx’s work spans illustrations to massive murals. His creations have appeared at galleries worldwide, including his MOON exhibit at Amsterdam’s Moco Museum alongside Basquiat, Warhol, Kusama, Kaws, and Banksy. The artist has more than 3.8 million followers on social media and he has partnered with brands as diverse as Porsche and SpongeBob SquarePants.
