XLARGE x Vans Authentic “Tie-Dye Checker Flag”

xlarge vans authentic tie dye XLARGE x Vans Authentic Tie Dye Checker Flag

Tie-dye and checkerboard patterns are iconic trends bookending the many forgettable fashions that have come to symbolize the 1970s. One represents ’60s peace and love, the other a ‘radical’ kind of 1980s rebellion, both synonymous with emerging youth subcultures.  So while they’re not from the same era or movement, it’s natural to combine both of these looks as one of the more successful Japanese streetwear labels has done here on their latest Off the Wall collabo.  The XLarge x Vans Authentic applies a tie-dye rainbow to the ‘white’ squares of the iconic Vans checkerboard, resulting in one of those styles that makes so much sense it’s hard to believe it hasn’t been done before.  Check them out in more images below and stick with Sneaker News to see if they head over our way after the Saturday, July 6th release in Japan.

When you first heard about a new adidas pair sporting giraffe print across the upper, you may have pegged it as another Jeremy Scott creation-but that’s not the case. The XLARGE team from Japan is the culprit this time around, and the giraffe sections don’t totally dominate the pair in JS fashion, instead showing up just for the stripes, tongue, and back tab of this adidas Originals Superstar 80s joint. These are set to hit retailers on May 15th, but you can secure your size now thanks to this pre-order from Packer Shoes.

Here’s a second look at the first X-Large co-signed Superstar, which also happens to be the first giraffe-print look for the venerable shelltoe in its quarter-century plus.  This XLarge x adidas Originals Superstar 80s picks up where last year’s Campus-including ‘Leopard’ capsule left off for the Japanese streetwear label, applying the aforementioned novel pattern to the horsehair Stripes, tongue and heel tab of two otherwise black suede/white sole makeup.  Giraffes can ward off predators, even killing lions, so the prey to be concerned about is their appearance on this April 27th release at XLarge stores; check them out after the jump and let us know if these are on your trapping list.

It was just about one year ago that Japanese streetwear OGs XLarge came through with a rainbow speckled Era to match a set of gear, and this latest collaboration with Vans might already have one of its items in your closet.  This XLarge x Vans Old Skool comes with a ‘Tropical Camouflage’ pattern that’s something like combining a Hawaiian shirt with an intense early ’90s color scheme that might remind you of the Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’.  The time capsule palette and overall visual business might make the best general comparison to the classic Coogi sweaters, yet they look nothing like that either.  A curious melange from some dudes who’ve been doing it longer than many sneakerheads have been alive, XLarge‘s latest Vans collabo will arrive in the Far East shortly.
