What a perfect time for Vans to come out with a super stylish collaboration with fashion favorites Kenzo. With Coachella raging on and festival season just beginning, you're totally going to need a comfy stylish shoe for the spring and summer, no? If Converse is the official sneaker of SXSW, maybe Vans can take on another festival with these new Kenzo prints - what do you think?

The classic surf/skate shoe, Vans definitely has a California vibe. Which makes it perfect for the mash up with Kenzo designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, Cali natives. They are big fans of the brand, telling Nylon they have "too many pairs to count."

The shoes are going to be released in three batches - May, June and July. The first release features Kenzo's Spring 2012 prints on the classic Era style. How much do I wish this was a real tennis sneaker? I feel pretty confident one of the releases will be the classic slip on, and I'm pretty excited about it.
