Malcolm McLaren Supreme Vans-V-79
In 2009 the former manager of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren, teamed up with Supreme for an interesting footwear collection with Vans, creating three colorways of their V-79 model. The shoes, used imagery from McLaren's groundbreaking 'Duck Rock' album, a record which mixed hip hop, appalachian mountain music and South African sounds way before anyone had even thought of Vampire Weekend.
The style was produced in 3 color ways: orange, pink, and yellow. Each pair carried a white toebox and midsole, while having the 'Duck Rock' print and logo atop a black tongue. To finish it all off, these styles have a vulcanized outsole, a signature feature on Vans models.
