Vans isn’t missing a beat with this collaborations, the latest is with Japanese Artist USUGROW. Usugrow’s trademark black & white illustrations, paintings and graphics of skulls and other dark matter have graced the covers of heavy metal, hip hop punk album covers as well as on a slew of apparel brands. The 3 sneakers that are being used as his canvas (Half Cab, Sk8 Hi, & AV Sk8 Low) are a reflection of the artist roots of course exclusively in black & white. Shit...I wouldn't have it any other way!
