Vans is joining forces with NEIGHBORHOOD and artist Mr. Cartoon for a special capsule collection. Officially called “Uncle Toons Mart by NEIGHBORHOOD,” the release will feature a 44 DX silhouette and Old Skool 36 DX.
Mr. Cartoon is no stranger to covering a Vans sneaker, as he’s collaborated with Vans Syndicate in the past. The special 44 DX will arrive in a dark grey and black colorway and prominently feature classic Cartoon designs like a lady, skull, street and store signs, roses as well as clown masks. NEIGHBORHOOD is written out in Cartoon’s signature style on the white outsole of the right sneaker.
For the Old Skool, black leather and suede cover the upper while a dark grey outsole gives it contrast. “Los Angeles” is embroidered onto the left toe cap while “Tokyo” is embroidered onto the right toe cap to pay homage to Cartoon’s hometown as well as NEIGHBORHOOD’s respectively. On the heel of the sneaker, “Uncle Toons Mart by NEIGHBORHOOD” is embroidered in a similar fashion.
Both the 44 DX and Old Skool 36 DX will be available on June 26 at NEIGHBORHOOD alongside an apparel collection and at retailers like INVINCIBLE and Allike. In related news, NEIGHBORHOOD recently collaborated with CASETiFY on some iPhone and AirPod cases.
Release Date: 6/26/20 (Friday)
