Vans is one of few skate- and street-footwear brands to have successfully established itself in the ranks of high fashion, the art and entertainment world. Following past collabs with Kenzo, Takashi Murakami, Disney, and Star Wars (to name a few), VANS debuts yet another high profile partnership with American designer Marc Jacobs. Contrary to popular belief, though, this is not the first time Jacobs and the skate shoe manufacturers teamed up: way back in 2005, the two parties came together to create what would be (one of) the first high end sneaker collections ever.

Now, more than 12 years later, the rather unlikely pairing reports back: A second round of  VANS x Marc Jacobs is on ist way. This was announced by sharing a breathtaking range of collaboratively created versions of VANS’ iconic slip-ons. Take a look at some of the stand-outs, below:

But don’t get your hopes up, guys! Unfortunately, only the last pair in the list will be on sale, and very limited, too, with less than 200 pairs readily available in New York and Japan stores.
The creations we see up above solely furfill inspirational purposes, as each pair of shoes comes with a set of markers for you to customize them yourself. They were created by 17 artists close to Marc Jacobs and the brand.
The collab is set to drop June 16, exclusively at aforementioned locations. If you can’t make it to either of the two options, you can also enter online to win 1 out of 10 pair(s) designed by Julie Verhoeven.

In other exciting shoe-news, Miley Cyrus joined forces with Converse in the Name of LGBTQ-pride. All proceeds go to the It Gets Better Project and the Happy Hippie Foundation, the latter of which was founded by none other than the songstress and activist herself.

At this point, all there is left to say is that WE WANT THEM ALL!!!
