The Gucci Continuum Collection Covers Vans Classics In Archival, Repurposed Patterns

Ahead of Spring 2023, Gucci has unveiled a number of special collaborations with sportswear institutions. The latest arrives in the form of an archival capsule prepped with Vans, the original action sports brand.

Presented under the “Gucci Continuum” banner, the five-pair collection reimagines silhouettes like the Vans Old Skool, Slip-On, and Mule with a Gucci touch. Each offering maintains its “Off the Wall” DNA, but the creative teams from both institutions have covered premium leather and canvas uppers with patterns and materials from the Gucci archives.

“Mismatched” arrangements throughout the range couple foral prints with studded checkerboard patterns as nods to Vans’s early “Custom Made for You” days. (Customers were able to bring their own fabrics and accoutrements to the original Van Doren Rubber Company shop in Anaheim, Calif. The shoes were made on site and customers were able to pick up their pairs by the afternoon in some cases.) The repurposed fabrics used across each classic design come from past Gucci collections – like Pre-Fall 2017​. All styles are unisex and packaged in boxes inspired by Vans’ customs from the 1960s.

Check out the entire Gucci Continuum collection ahead. Shop the shoes now via gucci.com for between $290 USD and $380 USD.
