This Marc Jacobs X Vans Collab Makes a Case for Wearable Art Here's how you can snag a pair!

Get ready for another Vans shoe collaboration that will make you lust over skater shoes! The brand is about to drop a very versatile Marc Jacobs iteration of its classic slip-on shoe. Their last collab dates back in 2005, which gave a shiny vinyl finish to its Sk8-Hi sneaks. This time, Marc Jacobs puts a new spin on the low-cut skater shoes featuring a customizable design.

The said pair designed by Marc Jacobs showcases a black and white sketch that should ideally be personalized by the owner using a set of Sharpie pens that come with each pair.

Additonally, Nylon.com reports that Marc Jacobs and Vans collaborated with various creatives like "nail artist Jin Soon Choi, drag performer Milk, illustrator Julie Verhoeven, model Jazzelle Zanaughtti, and makeup artist Sarah Tanno, photographer Ava Nirui," and more to demonstrate just how wildly creative you can get with the said shoe.

Unfortunately, these shoe creations are not available for purchase. But hey, you can totally use these designs as your inspiration when you get your own pair!

The sneakers will only be availble on a limited run—with just 125 pairs—and can only be bought in-stores in Japan and New York on June 16. Now, if you aren't able to book a ticket to Japan or NYC, you may put your luck in the hands of fate instead! Non-US residents are encouraged to join an online sweepstakes where they will raffle off 10 pairs of the sneakers featuring the designs of illustrator Julie Verhoeven. You may wanna sign up right away as the giveaway ends June 14 at 11:59PM EST!

Best of luck!
