World renowned sneaker shop and collaborator Patta joins up with Japanese-based shop BEAMS and Vans for a special three-way collab on the Vans Old Skool Womens this fall. Taking inspiration from an old Johnny Cash song, the “Mean Eyed Cat” Old Skool features a premium build in all-black suede and canvas with large Patta logos behind the signature jazz stripes and “Team Patta” text printed on the laces. Adding to the bold branding is “Mean Eyed Cat” text on each midsole.
Few brands can boast a history that’s as deeply and richly intertwined with skateboarding and skate culture as Vans. With shoes like the Sk8-Hi, the Authentic, and the Vans Old Skool Mens under their belt, the California-based brand truly has their finger on the pulse and legacy of skateboarding. But the brand with the jazz stripe does more than just skate: they’re extremely involved in surfing as well, hosting surfing tournaments and boasting a roster full of world class surfers like Dane Reynolds as well. Reynolds has served as inspiration for the new Vans Paradoxxx, a surf/lifestyle model that blends both surf and skate aesthetics for a vibe that’s unquestionably California.
Three years ago, Vans and size? teamed up to exclusively release a tonal suede pack to its consumers – continuing the successful partnership between the two. Now, they are back with a colorful Vans Old Skool Outlet Store collaboration that utilizes a patchwork aesthetic paying homage to excess off-cuts found on the floor of factories. It takes the extra panels from regular shoes that have been spliced and forgotten about and combines them into one brand new whimsical design. Choosing the Vans Old Skool for Sale as this design concept’s vessel will likely increase this size? exclusive sneaker’s popularity as that particular silhouette continues to rise up the ranks in streetwear culture.
Vans and London-based brand Lazy Oaf have come together to offer an expansive, whimsical women’s-only collection. The collection features four shoes: an Authentic, an Old Skool Platform, a Slip-On and a Style 29, as well as a matching collection of apparel with tees, hats, hoodies, and more. The Authentic features a white canvas upper with an all-over flower print and black midsole. The Vans Old Skool Discount offers an early 00’s aesthetic with a black/pink colorway adorned with checkerboard laces, hearts on the midsole, and “Bad For You” embroidery.
