WHIMSY, the Japanese sock retailer, is teaming up with Vans to produce a capsule collection for Billy’s Tokyo. No stranger to Vans collaborations, last year Billy’s released a camo pack, ‘branding’ Slip-Ons and ‘Side Wall Check’ Slip-Ons.
Now they return with WHIMSY to deliver a two-toned Authentic in two colourways: Black/Neon Green and White/Sky Blue. A vibrant sole is not all that these modified Authentics sport. A leather toe for a touch of class and a matte canvas along the rear to round out the shoe. If your bag is a little empty this week, maybe look at copping apparel from the collection instead. Socks designed for skaters in a number of colours are available.
The Authentics are releasing via the Billy’s store on June 14 for 9,000 JPY + tax (approximately $90).
