Back in 2012, The Meatball Shop and Vans teamed up for their first meatball-sneaker mashup—a bright-red pair of classic Vans covered with the restaurant’s signature meat-grinder logo, plus its name branded in gold on the back.
The Meatball Shop announced via Twitter today that it will be debuting a new pair, one with a completely different look. In collaboration with Proud Mary Textiles, Vans has opted to go softer and more geometric with the design this time. The new sneakers are coated in a coral-colored diamond pattern and sport the meat grinder in a more subtle spot on the back of the shoe.
There’s no need to rush to make your purchase just yet—the Ballers will put the kicks up online once they’ve got the inventory sorted out.
