Kristen Stewart designs Vans for Custom Culture inspiration

You can buy a regular pair of Vans in stores all over Houston. And not just at dealer stores like Journey's and Zumiez, but actual Vans stores. What you can't get in there are the shoes designed by celebs like Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) for the Vans Custom Culture contest.

Kristen is known for being into cool, casual clothes, and it's not unusual for her to trade the sky-high heels she wears on the red carpet for shoes like Vans once the photo op at a premiere or other event is done. Her footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theater were even done wearing the iconic black and white checkered Vans! (Check out the photos from the November 2011 event to the right.)

The shoes designed by people such as Kristen, Conan O'Brien, Lauren Conrad, and Cisco Adler are meant to inspire the high school students who'll be submitting their own unique designs. (Although Kristen's white pair has a simple "K" and "S" scrawled in black marker on each shoe!) The contest is a way for a high school to win $50,000 to help fund their art program.

Registration for the contest is open, with design submissions beginning in March.
