Earlier this year Vans brought the Custom Made + You Tour to some of Europe's most inspirational cities. Taking in cultural behemoths such as London and Paris, as well as the beautifully understated hotbeds of creativity that are Bordeaux and Glasgow, the tour saw five of our favorite artists trade their typical materials for canvas Classics, as they shared the love with sneakerheads and art fans!

Some of the world's biggest names in creative culture came together for the tour, seeing French, Kev Grey, Psykey, Tim Robot and Ben Bobzien descend upon Vans retail stores, offering free customisation of the sneakers purchased during the event. Whilst the guys worked tirelessly to offer each and every fan something unique and personal, everyone was free to enjoy the "off the wall" atmosphere, drinks and music laid on for the Custom Made + You Tour.

Between sessions, the artists had a chance to kick back and relax, and with antics including manly foot spas and tales of sleepless nights, this short video gives you a unique insight behind the tour, the artists and their inspirations, as well as the transcontinental power of the shaka. Enjoy.
