Simpsons x Vans - Gary Panter & Geoff McFetridge

Today we have another look at some shoes from the upcoming Vans and Simpsons project, this time by the Emmy award-winning “father of punk comics,” Gary Panter, and LA-based graphic artist and director, Geoff McFetridge. McFetridge chose the Chukka boot as his backdrop for an interesting flower-patterned piece, whereas Panter went with the iconic Era in depicting a Mr. Burns vs. Homer Simpson scenario. More images after the jump. Once again, there will be 14 different shoes available (limited to 100 pairs of each) Saturday, July 14th at: Conveyor at Fred Segal (Santa Monica), Supreme (LA), Dave’s Quality Meat (NY), UNDEFEATED (LV), KICKS/HI (Honolulu), Blends (San Diego), Proper (Long Beach), Bodega (Boston), HUF (SF), St. Alfred (Chicago).
