UPDATE: The BILLY’s x Vans Slip-On has slipped away from its Japanese homeland for a wider release through selected global stockists on December 8. If you like what you see, then head over to Invincible and stake your claim, or they might just pass you by.
The Vans Slip-On is a lifestyle classic. There’s something about the low-profile chiller that signifies taking it easy, perhaps in part to the slip-on nature (tying laces is hard work) or its inseparable bond to all-time slacker hero Jeff Spicoli. Regardless of the laconic nature attached to the waffle-soled classic, the model has had a tenacious history becoming a Vans mainstay since its introduction in the late-70s. Tokyo’s BILLY’s join a long list of collaborators and turn their hands to release a trio of suede colourways. The ‘Half Moon’ pack sees the toe of the Slip-On dressed with a rubber toe cap that extends from the midsole in white rubber housing a block-coloured upper.
The BILLY’S x Vans Slip-On Half Moon is available now from BILLY’S.
