Vans issue a sneaker-shaped nod to fellow Californian skate company, Santa Cruz, with this limited edition Classic Slip-On designed by famed skate artist Jim Phillips.

The clean, predominantly black design features touches of blue detailing, while miniature prints of Jim’s iconic “Screaming Hand” illustration repeat around the heel area – also appearing on the sneaker’s specially-designed packaging.

The Vans x Santa Cruz “Screaming Hand” slip on will be available exclusively from BEAMS T in Harajuku as of December 18, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Jim Phillip’s illustration.
