Several BMX related artists were asked to come up with an idea to customize a pair of white Vans slip-ons. The shoes were on display at the rebeljam in Eindhoven this weekend for all to see. In the next couple of weeks the shoes will be auctioned off to benefit BMX-ers in need who are facing big hospital bills. Take a look at the shoes and pick your favourites. These shoes came from the hands of Bob Haro, Mike de Wit, Joe-Tek, Taj Mihelich, Ron Bonner and Big Island got to do two pair.
Loads of you are able to do some design work and right at this moment, we're looking for a new FATBMX T-shirt design so we can print some up and have them ready for the rebeljam. If you've designed T-shirts before, you know how this works, you know what the print shop needs to get these made. Keep in mind that the more colours in the design, the more films need to be made and the more expensive the T-shirts will become. Keep in mind the different colours of T-shirts that we can use with your design.
What's in it for you? We'll get a (6-)package together for you plus the very first shirt that rolls off the printers' shop. If you're coming to the rebeljam, we will figure out a way to sneak you in (don't tell anyone).
We're looking for serious designers that know what they're

It's a bmx event that celebrates different aspects of bmx and its lifestyle.
The graffiti place that you've seen on FATBMX over the last couple of years is only a 10 minute bikeride away from the place where the 2011 rebeljam will take place. If you want to shoot some pics with riders with a graffiti background, take the effort and go there. New stuff gets added all the time so these pieces might be gone next time you go.
