Vans presented Marc Jacobs with a blank Slip-On canvas and the result was a collaboration that saw local artists in New York and Japan come together to customize the iconic sneaker. Marc Jacobs designed his own pair alongside artists like Julie Verhoeven, Ava Nirui and more.
All customizations will be presented via pop-ups in New York City and Aoyama. 149 limited-edition pairs – 125 in New York and 24 in Tokyo – will be available to buy on June 16, and each will also come with a MJ x Sharpie textile marker to encourage individual artistic experimentation.
Glance at all the designs above. Then, take a closer look on the Marc Jacobs Instagram page and stop by the pop-up shops on June 16.
