March 8th, 2014 by | No comments

vans california primera pack Vans CA Collection Primera Pack

Vans has a well earned image as a core skate brand, but that doesn’t mean that their sneakers can’t smarten up from time to time. Getting dressy is the new “Primera Pack” of silhouettes featuring the Vans Chukka Boot, the Vans Old Skool and the Vans Madero. Each of the shoes wear herringbone fabrics, some extra soft leather, and premium suede sections. On the bottom is a mixture of the waffle outsole that Vans is known for and the Ortholite insole that injects a bit more comfort into these classic builds. See each after the break and get them now at select Vans accounts or right here on the Vans website.

Vans Old Skool “Embossed Checkerboard Pack”

vans old skool embossed checkerboard Vans Old Skool Embossed Checkerboard Pack

The checkerboard pattern is one that we’ve seen Vans utilize again and again over the years. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – they’ve got some new Vans Old Skool releases on the way donning a squared out look that’s embossed onto the side panels on the upper. The embossing approach has the pattern looking a little more subtle than usual to the point where it takes a proper amount of light to really let the contrast shine. See the proof with us after the break and then catch these new releases from the California brand now from the team at Packer Shoes.

Vans to Re-release Classic Band Collaborations at SXSW

February 27th, 2014 by | 5 comments

vans sxsw band collab sneakers 17 Vans to Re release Classic Band Collaborations at SXSW

The thing about collaboration sneakers is that they aren’t the sort to ever get restocked or brought back. Sure, some stores will let go of their stock later than others, but for the most part you won’t get a second chance with silhouettes like these. Which is why it’s so exciting that Vans is bringing back the likes of their band collaborations – the Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Motorhead, and Rise Against releases will drop at the upcoming SXSW music festival. A different collab will go on sale each day at the Vans Village set up beginning at noon on March 12th, with 50 pairs of each releasing there and an additional of each 100 hitting Vans.com the next day. Continue reading to see all of these special Vans pairs and tell us in the comments if you’re trying to track some down.

Nearly every brand has its own take on the skateboarding scene in 2014, but none of them are linked to its genesis quite like Vans. Again taking advantage of that heritage is the new “Golden Coast Collection”, which features some understated takes on timeless silhouettes like the Vans Slip On and the Vans Era, with the attached colorways looking like they were plucked right the 1960s and 70s when the brand was first getting its footing. See the shoes in question below and keep in mind you can grab them now from select Vans stockists across the globe.

Vans Vault Old Skool “Vansguard Pack”

Vans had a good thing going with the Switchback boot, so hopefully that one gets back into the rotation as we head back into the fall later this year.  But aside from those, there haven’t been all that many waterproof Off the Wall shoes.  Luckily, Vans Vault has stepped in and changed all that, and the first Vansguard release will show off the protective powers on a trio of new Vans Old Skool LXes.  Kelp, red and True Blue colorways all have monotone uppers, white soles and brown on the tongues and foxing bands, with a hint of plaid on the tongue’s piping.  Click in to see them up close and expect these at Vans Vault retailers in February.
