With the help of their creative friends.

When we heard Vans and Marc Jacobs had collaborated again, we honestly thought there’d be rainbow sneakers. The offspring? Even better.

The new style is like a colouring book, but for your shoes. Fabric markers will be included with each purchase, to personalise and go all ‘Marc’ on your own pair. 

Artist Jin Soon Choi, drag performer Milk, illustrator Julie Verhoeven, model Jazzelle Zanaughtti, makeup artist Sarah Tanno and other Japanese artists have already worked their magic on the kicks.

And the results are something else.
 There’s one with leaves and petals, one with nails and chains, an embroidered pair, painted shoes and even one resembling a pin cushion.

Unfortunately, you can only find the new style in Marc Jacobs stores in New York and Japan… and only for this weekend.
