Daniel Johnston x Vans
Product style: VN0A5FCCAO7
Product color: DANIEL JOHNSTON Raven
Vans has teamed up with Daniel Johnston’s friends, family, and the “Hi, How Are You Project” to inspire new conversations around mental health issues by funding and creating thoughtful media content, projects, and events. We stand in support of their mission to remove the stigma and shame around mental health, so people will feel open to communicate, one conversation at a time.
The Skate SK8-Hi® in raven features Johnston’s classic hand-drawn cassette covers collaged as a custom Vans’ Checkerboard pattern on the quarter. The Skate Slip-on in raven are accompanied by the musician’s signature illustrations in black and white, with Johnston’s most notable character, Jeremiah the Frog, and his most recognized album, “Hi, How Are You” printed across the sidewall and upper. The silhouettes in the collection include DURACAP™ reinforced materials for added durability and PopCush™ energy-return footbeds.
• VANS SKATEBOARDING X DANIEL JOHNSTON COLLECTION: Custom artwork in this collection was inspired by Daniel’s iconic homemade cassette tapes and lo-fi art.
• INCREASED DURABILITY - DURACAP™ reinforced materials, deeper knurl texture on the toe bumpers, and higher sidewall heights provide a more heritage look with increased durability and protection.
• FULLY REDESIGNED UPPERS - Reconstructed with a molded heel counter and internal tongue straps for a locked-in fit and more board control.
• LEGENDARY GRIP - Our new, proprietary SickStickTM gum rubber compound is our stickiest rubber yet.
• POPCUSH CUSHIONING - Our best cushioning and impact protection. POPCUSH™ energy return footbeds protect your feet while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions.
