Japanese retailer BILLY’s teams up with Vans again after collaborating on an asymmetrical collection of Old Skools and Style 36 OG’s. This time around, the duo puts its signature “mix-match” motif on the timeless Vans Era 1966 silhouette. The four variants of colorways include Ebony/Paradise Green, Rumba Red/Blue Sapphire, Breen/Tango Red and Parisian Night/Multi, where checkered patterns and color-blocked overlays dominate the upper’s design. Crafted with predominately canvas materials and accented with velvet along the toebox, the shoes rest atop a classic rubber white midsole.

The collaborative sneakers are available exclusively now at BILLY’s online shop for ¥ 7,020 (approximately $75 USD). In related news, Vans recently partnered with Korea’s Kakao Friends and artist Hyunye on a limited collection.
