Great, But Where’s the Duff Beer?

The Simpsons Movie hype has reached a fever pitch this week with Springfield, Vermont winning the premiere and ever-expanding Flickr pools of the legendary 7-Elevens turned Kwik-E-Marts. 7-Eleven has a guide to some of the faux products that made their way onto Apu’s shelves, but via Murketing we learn there’s also a Vans artists series tie-in by peeps like Neckface, KAWS and Stash. According to Complex:

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.

On July 14, 100 pairs of 14 models will be available for $100 each at places like Undefeated, Supreme, and Dave’s Quality Meat. Sadly, they will not be available at the local Kwik-E-Mart. And you won’t find Duff Beer there either. Thank you, come again.
