Although Vans hasn’t loosened its grip around expansive, in-line collections, the Anaheim, California-based institution continues to tap members of its extended family for compelling collaborations. For the latest joint-effort, the “OFF THE WALL” brand has worked with Mr. SNEEZE of the aptly-named SNEEZE Magazine for a three-pair capsule.
Starring the Vans Skate Chukka, both parties keep things simple, outfitting the mid-top silhouette in “no-fuss” white, brown and lime yellow colors. Most of the uppers across all three colorways indulge in a durable and high-quality suede construction, which allows the shoes to be, as Mr. SNEEZE mentioned in a press release, “skated and destroyed.” The editor-intern-chief also modified the pairs’ laces and chunky outsole, while adding a heavy-duty pull tab at the heel.
Continue ahead for product shots of the SNEEZE Magazine x Vans Skateboarding collection here below, and find the Chukka being sold exclusive via the publication and at Montreal’s Dime store on January 21st at 12 p.m. EST.
