When scheming up this collaboration, the team over at the overseas boutique discovered a print within Vans’ archive from the early 1990s. Inspired by Southern California’s beaches, in particular Venice Beach, the print struck a nerve with SNS, which has a retail location nearby. The low-top, skate-ready shoe, then, was covered with a black-and-white version of the aforementioned print, although the pattern was modified to feature illustrations of all seven of Sneakernstuff’s stores. Canvas material throughout the pair’s top-half is complemented by a faint orange “VANS” tab on the lateral vamp, while off-white vulcanized midsoles are stamped with “SNS” lettering. Underfoot, the iconic waffle outsole boasts a non-standard color that further contributes to the shoes’ light color palette. Accompanying articles of clothing sport some of the same visual details and tones.
