It's one of the craziest weeks in music (and tech, and drinking, and everything else) as the annual South by Southwest festival goes on in Austin, Texas. As part of the week, our friends at Nice Kicks have hooked up with Vans to open "Vulcanized Vinyl," a combination record-sneaker shop that sounds like our wildest dream and our wallets's worst nightmare. Along with other Vans fare, Vulcanized Vinyl will be selling limited quantities of previous rock and roll band shoes Vans did in years past (check the VV link for a release schedule). Which led us to wonder what exactly the best Vans band tributes were? Click through for The 10 Coolest Vans Rock and Roll Sneakers of All Time.
