Yesterday Vans celebrated 50 years of bizz. A feat only triumphed by few companies in our game. Getting Vans in our store has been an honor and to celebrate this monumental occasion we thought we'd highlight a few of our favorite pairs from the past and present.
Vans Mountain Edition x Horween Leather.
The Yeezy 650 had to pull some inspiration from this classic pair of kicks. Ahead of it's time this Horween leather pair of Vans would have only gotten prettier with age.
Mid Skool 77 Tony Alva Edition
I love the minimal and classic aesthetic, with a throwback to the early days of the So Cal skate scene. Tony Alva was not only a core part of the Zephyr skate team, he also was a master of style in every aspect of his skating and persona.
Vans Sk8 Hi White Leather with Zip.
Premium subtle white leather mixed in with a zip for easy application. This shoe is the perfect mix of modern and street. The dirtier the better…
Diemme x Vans Vault Montebelluna Hi
The most premium Vans that have ever walked through my life. I first noticed the Diemme x Vault on friend who prides himself on the shoes that grace his feet. Since knowing him I'd never seen him run anything other than a pair of Chanel's, LV's or YSL's down below. Upon inquiring, he educated me on the Italian leather pair brands collaboration with Vans and instantly I took to the internet. Three words, 'Better With Age'.
Gosha Rubchinkskiy x Vans Sk8 Hi Suede
Before there was all the recent Dover Street Market hype around him Gosha was dropping bombs with Vans. To me these are the shoes that inspired Tony Ferguson's first collection of his new brand, Rone.
Supreme x Commes Des Garcons x Vans
Purely a hype play this one, or the best threesome you've ever seen? We think the latter. Three giants teamed up for to bring you the CDG Shirt on a pair of classics. Thank you...
Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault
From the split toe color blocking to the unique Hayashi branding that give these a timeless feel. Topped off with the herringbone toe boxes to add a lifestyle finish. This shoe is perfect in so many ways.
The best for last and taking it back to the very beginning with this fresh pair a Vans Authentic's. If they’re good enough for Spicoli, they’re good enough for me. If I got buried in a pair of these one day I'd know my family did good by me. Sliding through the underworld in the most iconic pair of shoes of all time.
P.S. I'm sorry that you had to be associated with that Daniel twat.
