Released way back when in 2005, these slip-on Vans were heavily customised by the likes of Raf Simons, COMME des GARÇONS and Collette Meets. The vans are made up of a canvas upper, emblazened with a whole host of logos from Raf’s previous SS03 Consumed Collection, with slogans reading ‘Chaos’, ‘Expendable’ and ‘Amnesia.’ The branding does not stop there however, with the insole featuring logos of all 3 contributors: Collette Meets, COMME des GARÇONS and Raf Simons himself, all taking over the classic Vans slip-on silhouette.

Upon release, only a mere 100 pairs were unveiled – making this THE limited collab of the year. For those who missed out (and happen to be a UK Size 6), have no fear! Clothes-swapping website, Grailed, have a user selling a pair of exactly these in mint condition complete with original box. Get your hands on them here.
