Rounding out the Nordstrom exclusive footwear is a set of velvet Chukka Boots in port royale and emerald green.
“The central idea in the collection of Vans we designed was to bring in elevated materials like shearling and velvet to a classic shoe. We wanted to create something that feels special, unique, and exclusive to Nordstrom. Sneakers don’t have to be so casual anymore – it’s a fashion statement at this point. I think by using these elements that seem high-end, like shearling or velvet, we’re elevating the shoes even further.” – Olivia Kim, Vice President of Creative Projects at Nordstrom
A selection of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories will be available as well. The collection includes elements from Vans’ 50 year heritage including Vans’ iconic checkerboard motif and Hawaiian floral patterns that match back to the Pop-In@Nordstrom x Vans assortment.
