Vans continues to pay tribute to beloved music acts on their sneakers and this collaboration may be their edgiest yet. Legendary skate-punk/hardcore/metal band Suicidal Tendencies has been bringing their own style to the masses since the early 80’s and has skateboarding street cred to spare. As a result, Vans has decided to honor the pioneering Venice, California shredders with their own signature Vans Era model.
The shoe will be released in both blue and black colorways featuring embroidered markings reminiscent of frontman, Mike Muir’s trademark bandanas, as well as what looks to be lyrics on the inner sole scribbled in classic Suicidal style. Both colors are available now at Caliroots in addition to 2 matching t-shirts, a hat and a belt.
