Todd Slater from Thousand Oaks, Calif., is the winner of January's Malakye Trivia featuring Vans. Vans hooked up Todd with "4" pairs of kicks and a copy of the Vans: Off the Wall book by Doug Palladini, signed by both Doug and Steve Van Doren!

Last month's question: Custom Vans have been a tradition from the beginning when customers could bring a square of fabric into a retail store to get a pair of custom-made Vans for only $1 (circa 1966). Question: How long did this take the factory to make? ANSWER: 19 days!
