Van Gogh goes 'Off The Wall' and on your feet in latest Vans collection

Vincent Van Gogh is ready to step out from one canvas and on to another in this exciting collaboration between Vans and the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam.

In the sneaker world, chunky "dad shoes" may be all the rave at the moment but Vans is set to prove that you can never go wrong with their sleek classic models.

Available worldwide starting August 3, the collection highlights Van Gogh masterpieces across iconic Vans sneakers and apparel. Out of over 2,100 pieces produced by the artist, Vans and the Van Gogh Museum selected "four main bodies of work that speak to the creative ethos of Vans' design as well as personal moments from the artist familial history".

“We are delighted with the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection, as it ties in with our mission to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible to as many people as possible in order to enrich and inspire them”, said Adriaan Dönszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum. “By uniting Van Gogh’s iconic artworks with iconic Vans styles, our partnership brings Vincent’s art 'Off The Wall' and into the world to a new audience outside the museum.”

Each model from the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection footwear collection is finished with custom footbed art that mimics Van Gogh’s memorable brush strokes with the Van Gogh Museum and Vans logo lock-up. Each piece from the collection will also include a special hangtag that highlight historical facts behind each piece of Vincent Van Gogh’s art.

Proceeds will be dedicated to the preservation of Van Gogh's legacy and collection of art. 

The Vans x Van Gogh Museum Collection will be available to shop at vans.com/vangogh and Vans retail stores and select Vans wholesale accounts. The collection will also be available at vangoghmuseumshop.com and in the museum shop at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam beginning tomorrow.
