“I love my JSP Vans” are words that Jimmy Gorecki has heard over and over since collaborating with the California institution for the first time in 2021. Recently, the East Coast-native unveiled his third collection with Vault by Vans, which immortalizes the praise received about past projects.
The Old Skool VLT LX and Sk8-Hi VLT LX share the spotlight in the upcoming capsule, although the former appears in two different styles. Gorecki offers “Kelly Green” and “Black” pig suede uppers on two low-tops; the Philadelphia-native’s latest Sk8-Hi features “True Blue” uppers. Additionally, nylon panels and reflective material appear across quarter areas and Sidestripe logos, respectively, elevating the classic Vans designs. “I Love My JSP Vans” messaging is stamped all around the midsole, while also landing underfoot. The toe bumper opts for a crystal clear finish that carries through to the outsole.
“For this latest partnership with Vault by Vans, our goal is to reflect feelings of familiarity and take new materials and design details like the reflective elements, a nostalgic nylon, super soft suede and continue to evolve the classic styles we grew up shredding in to make a design that reads both rich and rugged and with a whole lot of love that you’ll feel all the way to your sole,” said Jimmy Gorecki in an official press release.
Enjoy campaign imagery of the pairs ahead. The collection will be available to shop on standardissuetees.com on Wednesday, February 15.
