Vans is paying homage to legendary Japanese cartoonist Shigeru Mizuki with its latest footwear collaboration. The special range draws inspiration from the cult manga series GeGeGe no Kitarō which made its debut back in 1960. Graphics of yokai characters created by Mizuki are embellished on the two unique Old Skool iterations alongside yellow checkerboard patterns to boot. Accompanying the sneakers are limited six-panel caps in tonal black and long-sleeve T-shirts in white with co-branding details.

Peruse the photos above and purchase all items at select Vans accounts in Japan this November 23. Prices range from approximately $35 USD to $66 USD.
