The custom sneaker scene is bigger now than ever before, and while colorway and sole swaps are great, it’s rare to see the athlete for whom a shoe was both designed and named come in to do the handiwork. But that’s exactly what skateboarding legend Steve Caballero did for this collaboration between Vans and Supreme on the occasion marking two decades since the debut of his most enduring contribution to the game. The Supreme x Vans Half Cab 20th Anniversary special edition gets back to the model’s roots with a tiny 20-pair run starting off as the Caballero hightop that celebrated it’s 20th a few years back, and getting scissored down by Steve himself before duct tape finishes off the ankle collar. Click through to see a video depicting one of the pairs being completed and stick with Sneaker News for updates on this jealousy-inducingly limited release.
