Almost everyone will have owned a pair of skater-cool Vans sneakers at some point or another in their lives. Kenzo creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are no different, and so the long-time Vans fans joined forces with the shoe brand to give its classic Era sneakers a groovy makeover.

The Kenzo x Vans Summer 2012 collection, one of the most anticipated shoe collaborations of the season, is certainly a must-have for any sneaker collection. Classic Vans Era kicks get dressed up in bold Rastafarian hues like orange, green, blue and yellow in an oversized fishnet pattern, as seen on the Kenzo Spring Summer 2012 runway.
