Vans Vault Celebrates Iconic Frida Kahlo ArtworksRelease: 29 June 2019
Vans are releasing a trio of limited-edition sneakers as part of a Vault collection, featuring some famous paintings of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, in conjunction with Banco de Mexico and the Frida Kahlo Foundation.
The Sk8-Hi is rendered in smooth green leather on the toebox, tongue and eyestays, while the rest of the upper displays one of Kahlo’s most-recognised paintings, The Two Fridas.
The Authentic is a literal canvas for Viva la Vida, showing some cut watermelons.
And the Classic Slip-On shows perhaps Kahlo’s most iconic self-portrait on the upper panels, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird.
This pack is one for the art lovers, and releases on June 29 via selected Vans retailers, including SNS.
