Japanese Americana brand NEIGHBORHOOD returns with a special collaborative capsule, this time with both Mr. Cartoon and lifestyle sneaker brand Vans. The tattoo, graffiti and contemporary artist arrives to this “Uncle Toon’s Mart”-labeled triple collaboration with his signature West Coast-inspired characters and typography, clad atop of Vans’ Authentic 44 DX and Old Skool 36 DX silhouettes.

Of the two pairs, the Authentics show more in the sense of detail, as the “canvas” both literally and metaphorically display his airbrushed Chicano personalities across the entire upper. “NEIGHBORHOOD” cursive font is found along the white midsole adjacent to the Vans binding plate in the rear, while the insole also carries Mr. Cartoon and NBHD branding intermixed with an almost comic-book-like aesthetic. A classic gum sole finalizes the timeless design.

The Old Skool 36 DX pair, on the other hand, shines with material more in mind. An all-black suede upper is contrasted with a smooth leather Jazz Stripe on the lateral and medial sides. Each shoe features heavy embroidery — most prominently
with “LOS ANGELES” and “TOKYO” written across the toe boxes denoting Mr. Cartoon and NEIGHBORHOOD’s hometowns. The rear ankle also adopts embroidered styling, with “Uncle Toon’s Mart” and “By NEIGHBORHOOD” on the left and right shoes respectively. An off-grey/green midsole gives the shoe a bit of weight, along with the black laces and tonal black stitching.

Both pairs are expected to be releasing at NEIGHBORHOOD dealers and independent retailers, such as Allike, on June 26. Pricing is approximately €85-95 EUR (approximately $95-107 USD), depending on local and regional price differences.

NEIGHBORHOOD also recently collaborated with mobile phone accessory maker CASETIFY for boldly branded iPhone and AirPod cases.
