Having already featured on our blog twice in the last week with not one but two print releases, it doesn't surprise us that we are blogging about Dave The Chimp once again. Not one to sit around, Dave is back in London tonight for the launch of his newest project. With a long skateboard history it seem logical for him to do a collaborative shoe for Vans and tonight at Cargo will see the launch of the "Wake Up" shoe. A white leather, printed canvas Mid School model, with sleepy tattooed toes on the insole, and a crystal clear waffle sole, through which you can see the toes and features Chimp's ambigram signature (flip it upside down and it still reads the same!).
Size? will sell an exclusive boxed version of the shoes featuring a Hessen Mob skate deck, two Vans tees and a Dave the Chimp fanzine/ poster.
The launch will kick off at 8pm tonight at Cargo with live music from Robots in Disguise and Le Couteau Jaune. Plus Stool Pigeon DJ's and live art from Dave the Chimp
FREE ENTRY AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
