Neighborhood x Mister Cartoon x Vans Vault UA Authentic 44 DX - Black / White

Neighborhood

Legendary Californian shoemaker Vans created the Vans Vault in 2003, an initiative dedicated to collaborations with designers and artists at the vanguard of contemporary streetwear and culture. The effort made to foster trans-pacific collaborations has been particularly evident. Over the years, Undercover’s Jun Takahashi and artist Taka Hayashi have taken classic vans shapes as their canvas.

For this latest collaboration with Japanese streetwear icons Neighborhood, Vans continues this tradition. Yet with the recruitment of Mister Cartoon, one of LA’s most legendary tattoo artists, the result is a staunchly West Coast affair, a chance for Neighborhood to pay homage to a culture that has greatly influenced them over the years.

Named ‘Uncle Toons Mart’ after a fictional liquor store imagined by Mister Cartoon and Neighborhood, the concept behind this collaboration with sounds like something out of Grand Theft Auto. This is no coincidence. Mister Cartoon’s art was featured widely in the cult game series. It’s impossible to mention Los Angeles street culture without mention of Mister Cartoon.

The UA Authentic 44DX in Black / White features all-over graphics portraying ‘Uncle Toons Mart’ and associated characters and motifs, all in Mister Cartoon’s trademark West Coast tattoo style. Other features include black heel plaque, classic Vans vulcanized midsole, gum rubber outsole with branded script detailing on the side, and high foxing tape.
