his season we have teamed up with Daniel Johnston’s friends, family, and the “Hi, How Are You Project” to inspire new conversations around mental health issues by funding and creating thoughtful media content, projects, and events. We stand in support of their mission to remove the stigma and shame around mental health, so people will feel open to communicate, one conversation at a time. To raise awareness, we are proud to deliver the Vans x Daniel Johnston Skate Slip-On, featuring Daniel’s iconic cassette tape artwork on elevated suede and 6 oz canvas uppers. In his early songwriting years, Daniel would hand-draw on individual cassettes and give them to friends and strangers. The artwork on this shoe features a checkerboard created from these cassettes, as well as the same lo-fi, gritty execution from Johnston’s unique art. Because sometimes skateboarding is about more than just the tricks.
