The first's theme comes from "Almond Blossoms", part of a group of several works and painted in 1890 for the son's birth of his brother Theo: on this elegant Sk8 Hi, white branches seem to float against a blue sky as hint of bliss and joy. On the other way, Vans Authentic are marked by "Sunflowers" graphics, a series of canvas depicting the different blossoming phases of these colorful flowers. Rough brushstrokes shine through these low sneakers' artworks, basically glimpse of sunflowers in flower. To sum up, Vans Slip-On split between the "Skull" painting and shreds of his brother Theo's letters, art dealer and Van Gogh's only close confidant. Vans T-shirts and sweats round off the pack with matching prints and "Vincent & Vans" lettering embroidered on their chest.
