http _hypebeast.com_image_2017_05_jjjjound-vans-old-skool-2017-collaboration-06

Vans Canada teams up with JJJJound, to create this 90’s inspired OG Old Skool LX pack.  Featuring 3 colorways, a two-tone green inspired by greenhouses and plants, a two-tone brown inspired by woodworkers and furniture, and an off-white color resembling art canvases and tote bags.  The shoes feature a common mixture of suede and 8oz. canvas, like we’re used to seeing on our OG’s, but the unique thing about these are the razor-cut boat deck soles, and cork footbeds.  Also, don’t overlook the USA-made laces, and 90’s vintage-esque hang sticker.  These will be roughly $110 USD, but will be released exclusively in Montreal, at an undisclosed location.  Keep your ears to the streets!

Vans Vault x Goodhood – “Equal / Opposite” Collection (4.29.17)

The debut collaboration between Vans and, contemporary lifestyle retailer, Goodhood launches this Saturday.

Bringing to life a theme of Equal | Opposite, the collection is a ‘Vault by Vans’ unisex pack that features the Goodhood monogram and logo in repeat across the uppers and laces of two iconic Vans silhouettes – the Sk8-hi and the Authentic.

Inspired by Newton’s law of physics which states that ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’, with forces on an object being consistently identical, the pack comprises three shoes where both women and men are equally represented. The collaboration features a white and black Sk8-hi that runs in a female size break, with the inverse colours appearing on a second Sk8-hi in men’s sizing. The trio is completed by a white and black authentic available in a full unisex size range.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, The Goodhood Store has been a destination retailer for contemporary apparel and footwear since its inception. With a belief that every product stocked has a story and relevance to their ethos, Director Kyle Stewart commented: “The project afforded us the opportunity to design product with a unique unisex mentality and the finished product represents our brand in it’s truest sense and treats both the men and women customers as complete equals.”

The Vans x Goodhood pack will be available from Goodhood’s East London store and Online from Saturday 29th April 2017

Vans Japan x Deluxe – Authentic (4.29.17)

http _hypebeast.com_image_2017_04_deluxe-vans-authentic-09

Here’s another Vans shoe releasing for the Japan market, this time with luxury brand Deluxe.  They chose to use the Era (CO.JP as we like to call this particular shape), featuring a slightly rounder toe, lower foxing height, and an overall shape that seems to be used quite a bit in Japan.  Yes, for all you new Vans fans, there are different types of Vans in Japan, and no, they’re not fake.  Deluxe went with a traditional canvas mock-up, in two classic colorways, while featuring a few checkerboard hits throughout the shoe, mainly on the tongue, heel strip, and the footbed heel pad.  A little bit of checkerboard goes a long way, and too much can sometimes be obnoxious.  The foxing scene sees a classic Vans director logo, slightly modified for Deluxe.  The final feature is the gel-clear waffle soles, featuring the same custom director logo.  These will be available from Deluxe on April 29th, for ¥9,000 JPY.

Vans Japan x Sasquatchfabrix x Beams – Old Skool (5.3.17)

Vans Japan and Beams have teamed up with Sasquatchfabrix, to bring to you this nice and simple Old Skool.  Featuring the classic suede/canvas combo that us traditionalists love, the shoe’s main color choice is white, but with a slightly contrasting natural white suede.  Red accents can be found on the foxing stripe, and tongue label.  The unique feature on this shoe, which we’ve recently learned about, is the elastic woven straps above the tongue.  We haven’t seen this before!  Not much more to say about these, but FYI they’re a Japan exclusive.

Vans Surf x Brothers Marshall – Surf Collection (4.20.17)


Hot off the shores of First Point, Vans and Malibu surf label Brothers Marshall have reunited to create a summer footwear and apparel capsule designed by Malibu surf cohorts, Chad and Trace Marshall. Arriving in finer surf shops now, Vans’ new Brothers Marshall capsule celebrates the two brands’ playful surf aesthetic, paying homage to retro silhouettes, flamboyant color schemes and bold neoprene trims. The Brothers Marshall label emerged from the breaks of Malibu more than a decade ago, spreading their clever California aloha with products inspired by the cultural amalgamation of Los Angeles surf style today and the generations that came before it.

Undoubtedly the two most coveted pieces in the collection, Brothers Marshall taps into two timeless Vans surf styles to present clean, all-white renditions of the Authentic SF and the Slip-on SF, made special by an irresistibly vibrant rainbow gum sole. Each pair features easy on-off kickdown heel counters and natural true white canvas uppers. Two black sandal styles complete the footwear offering, the Slide-On and Nexpa Synthetic, each boasting the Vans x Brothers Marshall signature logo on the upper and footbed.

The Brothers Marshall Vans apparel offering epitomizes retro surf styling, showcasing a soft, white French terry washed cotton pullover and an 18” volley short featuring Vans’ 4-way Sturdy Stretch fabrication and a custom side stripe detail. A set of overdyed vintage cotton tees in royal blue and black paired with matching hats round out the capsule. Each apparel piece is trimmed with custom neoprene Brothers Marshall logo tags in the capsule’s unifying rainbow gradient.

Vans unleashes Brothers Marshall’s vibrant, tongue-in-cheek spirit in their new summer collaboration, available now at Vans by Thalia Surf Shop, Mollusk Surf Shop, Jack’s Surf Shop, PacSun and many more. Visit to find the list of local retailers near you.
