This new collabo with Vans and The Simpsons Movie has got people going nuts. I personally am going bananas over these.
Here are a couple of pics of part of the set that is going to be released:

Vans hit up 12 staples in the underground art community to produce a series of Simpson-inspired sneakers, as part of an ultra-limited collaborative project. Allowing each artist the freedom of interpreting the way they viewed the crew from Springfield, each sneaker came out distinctively different, carrying a serious collect-ability factor. Included in this post we see Neckface and KAWS Chukka’s, and Stash’s Sk8-Mid LX (check images after the jump). On July 14 —14 different models will drop for a total of 1,400 shoes (100 each style) and will retail for $100. Shops that will be carrying the collection include: Conveyor at Fred Segal (Santa Monica), Supreme (LA), Dave’s Quality Meat (NY) Undefeated (LV), Kicks/HI (Honolulu), Blends (San Diego), Proper (Long Beach), Bodega (Boston), Huf (San Fran), and St. Alfred (Chicago.) Start scheming or be prepared to drop serious D’oh on eBay.

Seeing the limited numbers and the limited stores that are getting them….it’s going to be one crazy release. With Vans on the rise and every person in my generation that watched Simpsons…these shoes are going to be hard to find.
