Celebrity stylist and fashion guru Robert Verdi got custom-made Van sneakers based off of some designs from his favorite Hermès scarves. This is not a collaboration between Hermès and Vans; however, it does prove that if there ever was one, it would be wildly successful.

This series of slip-on vans are irresistible and expressive because of the animated colors and detailed design of the scarves. Vans have always been synonymous with American skate culture, and this combination of high fashion French couture is absolutely a fashion-fusion for the books. Sadly, since these shoes are not going to be available to the public, they may only exist in your fashion dreams. Hopefully, both Hermès and Vans get inspired by Robert Verdi and decide to do a collaboration and actually release a line of these Hermès-inspired shoes.
