Vans OTW x Mr. Cartoon – Alomar

Mr. Cartoon is the next advocate from Vans OTW to get his own shoe, and it’s about time.  We’ve known for awhile that a shoe was in the works, but that’s all the info that existed.  Today, we’ve learned that the Alomar was his shoe of choice, and we can now give you a first look at the Mr. Cartoon Alomar.  Dressed up in a navy blue nubuck leather with plaid lining, and gold accents for the eyelets, and gold embroidered lettering, and logos, inspired by his tattoo artwork that he’s known around the world for.  You can catch a large cursive “C” with some nice filigree on the side panel of the shoe.  You can also see a clown logo on the tongue, and a cross on the heel pull, which are both seen a lot in Cartoon’s work, influenced by Southern California’s Latin culture, and their specific artistic style, whether it’s in the form of an airbrushed hood of a lowrider, or a full back piece tattoo.  You can say he’s one of a few advocates that brought Latino art to the masses, even if he hasn’t been given the title!  You can expect these to release soon, so stay with OTWS for any new info!
