Japanese retailer BEAMS is celebrating their 40th anniversary and has partnered with the archipelago's waffle branch Vans JP to produce a very limited run of navy canvas Era JP's. The shoes boast a bit of an OG styling with high foxing. They also have BEAMS branded sock liners and two different colored flag tags, orange and blue. As you all know, this is also a very big year for Vans, with them celebrating their 50th anniversary. With that in mind, BEAMS is also offering a vinyl toy of the founding father himself, Steve Van Doren. How awesome is that? The collection will come in classic Van Doren "Custom Made for you" boxes with an added bonus of being a pullout drawer style.
The BEAMS x Vans Era JP 40th/50th Anniversary Collection is slated for release this April exclusively from BEAMS in Japan. Preorders are being taken now but they are almost gone. Get them if you can.
