Vans is a brand that boasts a long and rich history. Having joined forces with everyone from Supreme to Concepts for limited-edition takes on their iconic silhouettes like the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, the California-based brand is also no stranger to collaboration. Now, it’s Korea’s time to shine in the collaborative spotlight, as popular Seoul-based menswear brand WOOYOUNGMI is lending their skate-inspired touch to two new Vans Slip-Ons: a bright red and a dark blue. Inspired by the cult classic film “Lords Of Dogtown” and California skate culture, the shoes feature a full-grain leather upper with two-tone midsoles. Classic WOOYOUNGMI typography is printed on the sidewalls for a touch of special branding, and the shoe’s insoles feature a hand-drawn paisley print inspired by the bandannas skaters wore during the Dogtown era. If you’re a fan of the old-school skate look, these limited Slip-Ons are slated to release at select Vans stores/WOOYOUNGMI flagship boutiques in Seoul June 2nd.
