Editor’s Notes: Vans has partnered with Los Angeles-based artist Mister Cartoon and Japanese streetwear brand NEIGHBORHOOD for a new two-sneaker collaboration. Consisting of the Authentic 44 DX and Old Skool 36 DX, the pack is referred to as the “Uncle Toons Mart” collection, named after a fictional liquor store imagined by Mister Cartoon and NEIGHBORHOOD.
The collaboration is inspired by each participant, as Mister Cartoon draws from his LA roots to showcase his signature tattoo-influenced style. At the core, the pack celebrates both Mister Cartoon and NEIGHBORHOOD’s dedication to craftsmanship and attention to detail, while blending Tokyo street style and Los Angeles street life.
