Footwear brand Vans partnered up with creatives from The Flying Hawk Studio and Simple Union for a tri-pack of unique custom sneaker designs that celebrate Japanese culture via traditional iconography. The silhouettes in the mini collection are Vans' classic Slip-Ons, the Sk8-His and the Authentic Canvas shoe.

The tri-pack collection is dubbed 'Series of Craft And Cultural'and due to its limited-edition nature and aesthetic, the custom sneaker designs are more pricey than original Vans footwear at $252 USD. The monetary difference is surely a testimony toward the detail accuracy and the skilled craftsmanship that is injected into the sneaker designs by Vans and shoe customizers The Flying Hawk Studio and Simple Union.
