Vans Classics – Full Cab (November 2017)

HO17_Full_Cab_collection_4-up

Words via Vans:

“Building off the legacy of the brand’s first ever signature shoe, Vans presents an updated take on the Full Cab. Featuring suede and crocodile embossed leather with an all-new gold dragon lace lock, the high-top is offered in four seasonal colors including blanc de blanc, black, racing red and the Foot Locker-exclusive: scarab green. The Full Cab is arguably the first signature athlete shoe to be released in the skateboarding industry and has continued to define skateboarding footwear for the better part of a decade. Built with function, performance and protection in mind for the quickly evolving vert skateboarding scene of the early ‘90s, the shoe has steadily transitioned into a lifestyle staple. Originally named the Caballero, the shoe was first released in 1989 and today, represents the first wave of signature shoes in skateboarding. Steve Caballero himself played an instrumental role in designing the Full Cab.

“I wanted a shoe that was functional for vert and skating pools but that was also stylish,” Caballero says of his signature high top. He incorporated reinforced toe pieces and extra ankle support for protection while skating steep transition. “Before I was sponsored by Vans, I was wearing a lot of different high tops — mostly old basketball shoes. If you look closely at the Full Cab, you can see some of the inspiration there from the ankle support to the structural top closure.”

While the premium materials and gold lace lock detail are new, the shoe’s silhouette and signature flying dragon logos are a period-perfect callback to ‘90s skate style. The latest Full Cab offering is a testament to Vans’ rich history in both skateboarding and sneaker culture.”

The Full Cab will retail for $95 USD and will be available in an extended size range. The latest Full Cab collection will be available at Footlocker and select Vans wholesale accounts beginning this November. For more information please visit vans.com/fullcab.

Vans x Peanuts – Collection Two (10.6.17)

HO17_Classics_Peanuts_ElevatedAuthentic_Comics

Words via Vans:

“Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, continues its long-standing relationship with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang in its latest collection of footwear, apparel and accessories this October. Using original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz, the collection pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials.

Charles M. Schulz illustrations take new shape across the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool styles using the entire silhouette as a canvas. Original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy take over the monochromatic silhouettes and are outfitted with leather Sidestripes. Kicking it back to the comic strip days is an Authentic that has been decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Peanuts fans can get their dancing shoes on in an Authentic or Old Skool model that depicts the whole Peanuts Gang during the memorable dance party scene from the animated television special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and his family members across the canvas panels of the Half Cab. Peek closely and you may see Snoopy’s brother, Spike, on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. Vans’ very own Checkerboard Slip-On has been reimagined this season to include the many playful expressions of Snoopy that can be found within print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue gets a premium upgrade with leather materialization and has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include the subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock can be seen on the tongue label. A very special Classic Slip-On was created to celebrate the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.

Signature Vans x Peanuts apparel and accessories will be available in a range of prints that match the footwear assortment, including the monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print. Tiny tykes get their very own Classic Slip-On that features Snoopy with a plush tail detail at the heel.”

Vans – “Souvenir Jacket” Collection (Fall 2017)

HO17_Classics_NJOT_VN0A38F8QU3_ClassicSlip-OnDX_CaliforniaSouvenir_Black-BlancDeBlanc_Macro

Words via Vans:

“Vans kicks off the upcoming holiday season with a head-to-toe offering that draws inspiration from the souvenir bomber jacket. The eight-piece California Souvenir assortment is dressed in rich materials including satin, decorative lurex piping, and embroidered detailing across a collection of Classics and apparel staples. The capsule will be available worldwide beginning this October.

The hero piece of the capsule comes from Vans’ interpretation of the souvenir jacket, which sets the stage for the entire offering. Vans designers pay homage to the customary elements of a traditional souvenir jacket including two-toned color-blocking, striped rib detailing, quilted lining and embroidered back script and tiger. Those original elements are blended alongside nods to Vans’ home state of California with embroidered palm trees and poppy flowers.

Proving Vans Classics are not just one thing, Vans designers have brought the flight satin and embroidery elements to three of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. The Classic Slip-On features the all over satin material and embroidery across the vamp of shoe. The tiger in the poppies are mirrored across a rose-pink execution, while the black Classic Slip-On highlights the tiger in the palms and the poppy on each side. The Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Reissue take a subtle approach and use lush satin paneling throughout and feature decorative lurex cording across the heel. Each style is delivered in classic black with a metallic greige available in the Old Skool.  Available in Unisex sizing (up to a mens 10).”

The California Souvenir Pack will be available to shop online at Vans.com/Classics or in Vans retail locations beginning this October!
