“I was a dark dumb student, no hokey rookie daytrippin on visions of chickens that looked like R Crumb drew em.”

vans rcrumb sk8 hi slip on 04 R. Crumb x Vans   Sk8 Hi + Slip OnHeard of this lyric from Aesop Rock and wondered who R. Crumb is?  Never even heard of Aesop Rock?? Well we can’t help you with heightening you’re musical tastes, but can tell you that Robert Crumb is an essential part of American illustrative work and the rise of independent comic books in the 70′s.  He is also the topic for Vans’ new collaborative work.  The SK8-Hi is a simple white canvas upper accented with illustrations of Mr. Natural, a signature character of R. Crumb’s American satire.  The Slip On, on the other hand, has it’s silo decked out in colored artwork, also with a famous comic strip character of his.  Cop both the “Mr Natural” SK8-Hi and “Fritz the Cat” Slip On at Colette.
