The late, great Daniel Johnston is once again being honoured via some new streetwear. Following the recent Supreme collection celebrating Johnston, No-Comply Skate Shop and Vans are teaming up for a new set of custom Daniel Johnston sneakers.

The collection will feature three pairs of Johnston-celebrating Vans: the Slip-On Pro, Old Skool Pro and Authentic Pro, Sneaker News reports. They will be exclusively available at No-Comply on June 13, with a wide release set for June 21 at select shops. Of course, June 21 is also Go Skateboarding Day.

The shoes feature Johnston's original artwork, with soles containing the numbers 61 and 19, which represent the years the musician was born and died, respectively.

In addition to the sneakers, the collection also features Johnston T-shirts, a tote and a custom hat. You can get an idea what it looks like above.

This actually marks the second time No-Comply and Vans have teamed up for a Johnston collection, with another two pairs of Daniel Johnston Vans arriving last year.

Daniel Johnston passed away at age 58 last September.
