Few things in the world go together as seamlessly as the Grateful Dead and tie dye. For decades, the jam band has sold out arenas all over the world in front of an ageless, smokey crowd, toting colorful t-shirts adorned in every pattern of tie dye imaginable. Now, Vans is serving up a nod to the iconic group by way of boisterous prints plastered on the canvas-ridden uppers of three of their most iconic silhouettes, the Authentic, the Slip-On, and the Sk8-Hi. While this pack is indeed not affiliated with the Dead, the Slip-On takes the homage a step further by way of a boney, rose-wielding skeleton hand on its forefoot. Whether you are an avid Dead Head or a casual skater looking to celebrate What A Long Strange Trip Its Been, enjoy a detailed look below and head over to Vans.com to grab your favorite pair.
