Vans has teamed up with legendary skate duo Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen for a safari themed pack of classics. Featuring the Authentic Pro, Old Skool and Av Sk8 Low silhouettes, these three partners have created a ferocious collection that utilizes snakeskin, cheetah and leather throughout each respective upper. All three models are equipped with clear outsoles, special-edition packaging and a canvas bag. Look for this trio to hit select retailers in the very near future, but save me a 9 in the snakeskins!

Highsnobiety Vans x Supreme Retrospective

Highsnobiety has just amazed me with this post…With the recent announcement of this season’s Supreme collaboration with Vans, we figured we would compile a full look at the history of sneakers that the two brands have come up with over the years.

This latest release will be the 13th time the two have worked together and the second time that theMike Carroll (MC) will have been utilized. Over the years, we’ve seen the some of the best and most classic styles from Vans such as the Era, SK-8 Hi, Chukka, Old Skool and Half Cabs used numerous times, mixed in with other popular styles like the Mountain Edition and 106. Various materials ranging from canvas to suede, and leather to denim have been used mixed in with prints, patterns and solids.
