I know we say this a lot, but when Vans Japan collaborates with Asian designers, they hit home runs. This project they have completed with artist and Rollicking's chief designer Shiro Nakano is absolutely no exception. Both pairs build upon a satin upper with Japanese embroidery paying homage to Mt. Fuji on the vamp. For the golden pair, Shiro and Vans JP went with a traditional Mt. Fuji design with accompanying pagoda needlework. On the black pair's vamp, a more modern look was achieved with a map of the island and Fujiyama script and vibrant colors.
Both pairs of the Rollicking x Vans Slip On JP "Fujiyama" are available from ABC Marts across Japan as well as online.
