Vans goes van Gogh...

Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum has collaborated with classic sneaker maker Vans on a line of shoes and attire emblazoned with the seminal artist's work.

Vincent van Gogh's most iconic images such as Sunflowers and a Self-Portrait will debut next week on sneakers and wearables. A satin bomber jacket, backpack and cap can be purchased with an all-over Almond Blossoms design. Popular styles of Vans sneakers will sport Old Vineyard, words from his brother Theo's letters, and other artworks. 

Van Gogh Museum’s website will feature the line, with profits “dedicated to the preservation of Van Gogh’s legacy and collection of art,” along with Vans webstore and other venues, beginning Aug. 3.
