MALIK x VANS
Vans. Skate. Shoes. Clothes. Music. Family. Since 1966, Vans has been a major pioneer in cultivating opportunities for creatives and risk takers. The brand is more than just fashion, it's a lifestyle. Over the past decade, Vans has been a part of Radford's life. Being a primary component to his style of fashion, Radford's love for the brand transcended into love for the company. He decided add the brand to his list of potential creative career opportunities. In 2016, Radford began a retail position with Vans and since then, love for the company has grown. The company has allowed Malik to express himself creatively, using them as an outlet and guide to help him expand his idea of what he can do with his passions. In 2017, Radford entered and won a nationwide Vans employee custom shoe contest. As the winner of his district, he was granted a free pair of designed shoes, as well as the chance to display a pair in store.
