Vans’ latest artist collaboration showcases the work of Japanese artist, Usugrow. His dark tattoo-inspired line art style proves to be a good match for the three Vans shoes that make up this collection. The Half-Cab, AV Low and Sk8-Hi will all be released in Usugrow’s trademark black and white color scheme and feature elements of his artwork. The AV Low and Sk8-Hi feature black stitched graphics on black uppers with contrasting white midsoles, but the Half-Cab edition has some more noticable touches. The black leather Half-Cab has a cool skull with crossed swords on the heel and some of Usugrow’s lettering style carved into the side of the midsole. Look for this collection to drop some time in March. via Hypebeast.
