Is the United States Postal Service the next hot entity in sneaker collabs? While making some headlines earlier in 2021 for Nike’s not-so-hidden reference to the organization with the Air Force 1 Experiment, the USPS is now prepared to drop an actual collab with skate-lifestyle brand Vans, with footwear and apparel inspired by the delivery workers, mail sorters, and other tireless employees that play an integral part in the world of sneakers.
The USPS x Vans collection includes the Authentic, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi MTE, and a Foot Locker-exclusive Sk8-Hi Reissue – each decorated with the ever-recognizable emblems and colors donned by the employees. The Authentic goes with a straightforward all-over-print of the classic logo against a grey black base; the Old Skool takes a classic letter envelope approach with all-white and a stamp on the tongue; the Sk8-Hi MTE is inspired by the official uniforms of delivery workers; the Sk8-Hi Reissue takes after the Priority Mail packaging.
The entire USPS x Vans footwear collection is confirmed for delivery on November 29th on Vans.com, Foot Locker, and select retailers. The Sk8-Hi Reissue “Priority Mail” will release exclusively at Foot Locker on January 20th. Prices of the footwear range from $65 to $115.
In other news, the Cool Grey 11s officially release on December 11th.
