DQM and Vans represent New York City with their latest collaboration. The effort results in the Authentic and Sk8-Hi fitted in white canvas adorned with an “I Love NY” all over print. The kicks are exclusive to DQM but you don’t have to be in NY to grab a pair as they will release in-shop and online on the 19th of April (Friday).
