Vans chose 200 models to customize
LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – Good shoes can take you to great places, and two LaBrae students are hoping the Vans shoes they custom designed can make their school $ 50,000.
“We are the only school in Ohio that was chosen for the finalist. So we hope that our community can come together to give us the vote so that we can win, ”said student Cierra Burchett-Norquist.
Burchett-Norquist and Kristen Corvin submitted sketches for the competition. Vans chose 200 models to customize.
“They worked hard and thought about their idea in their theme to try to convey that through their shoes without having to tell their story to their viewer,” said Katie Kistler, art teacher at Labrae.
The shoes are on display at LaBrae High School and a second pair was shown at a student art show that wrapped up last night.
Corvin’s shoe is cut in half. This is part of the Head in the Clouds theme. The images include stories from the past in relation to your future.
“Like sometimes people have a tough past and then they end up creating a better future for themselves, so I decided to show it off as a book,” Corvin said.
The second shoe is Burchett-Norquist’s design for Hometown Pride. It includes photos of landmarks and monuments in the area.
“So on my shoes, they are displayed like a movie or a photograph. This way the images can look like photographic films, ”she said.
If happiness starts in your sole, these designs will hold up well. There is a saying: life is short, buy the shoes. In this case, you can vote for them. Girls would appreciate your support.
“There is a lot of very good competition. I feel like we have a very good chance and I hope we can win, ”said Corvin.
You can vote once a day until 5 p.m. next Friday. Vote, Click here.
