After teaming up with Taka Hayashi for a Vault collection supplied with military themes, skatewear imprint Vans is continuing adding to their Spring collaboration catalog by linking up the famous television network, National Geographic. A rather unexpected partnership to say the least, the capsule is a blend of the Anaheim-based imprint’s signature silhouettes merged with that of unique animal and nature-inspired graphical treatments.
The Slip-On and Authentic pairs translate interesting wallpapers of Greenland’s ice glaciers as well as ocean waters filled with a school of fish. Old Skools adhere to the aforementioned animal motif as its lateral and medial walls split between literal imagery of Mexican Grey Wolves and Red-Eyed Tree Frogs. Eras sport a collage of National Geographic magazine covers sprawled all-over fashion, while the Sk8-His take a more minimal approach and simply blow up NG branding across its heels. Peep a closer look at each design here below, and note they’ll be dropping in select retailers on June 1st as well as Vans.com in the coming weeks.
For other news, here’s a first look at the Yeezy 350 Abez.
