Vans was the first company to sponsor BMX riders, and two Era models arrive as a nod to early action sports athletes. A navy and red two-tone option was first adopted in 1976 by Dogtown legends Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta and features a red checkerboard pattern on the midsole. Another yellow and blue model follows the same formula with sturdy canvas and leather lining.

Patchwork denim hits two iconic Vans silhouettes–the SK8-Hi and the Classic Slip-On. On the Sk8-Hi, navy suede hits the lace panel, toe box, and heel, while the quarter panels have patchwork patterns sewn on top of the denim panels. A white stripe pairs well with the classic white outsole with dark navy foxing tape. Adopting a more geometric approach, the Classic Slip-On adds squares of denim in black, white, and three shades of blue to the upper. White leather hits the liner and covers the entire midsole, adding contrast to the denim patches.

A Tribe Called Quest and Vans collaborate for two models showcasing elements of the group’s signature album artwork. A pale yellow suede Sk8-Hi commemorates the group’s breakout hit “Bonita Applebum” from their 1990 album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of the Rhythm by embroidering the title of the song near the lace panel, the stick figures that adorned each album cover on the heel, and even lyrics from the song on the laces. A black suede Old Skool features the group’s trademark red, black, and green stripes first seen on the cover of The Low End Theory on the quarter panels, the band logo on the tongue, and the album titles on the laces in green, red, and yellow.

No stranger to high-profile collaborations, like a recent KAWS capsule, the Peanuts gang links up with Vans for a full range of sneakers and apparel. A Snoopy-inspired collection features two adult options and three more for toddlers. Two SK8-Hi reissues rely on black and white, one black suede and canvas model with Snoopy laying on bones in the shape of the stripe and another with Joe Cool appearing on white canvas which is contrasted by black suede on the toe, eyestays, and heel. The Joe Cool SK8-Hi is also available as a zip model for kids, along with a slip-on pink model with an amorous Snoopy illustration on the toe and an Authentic silhouette in blue with an all-over print of skateboarding Snoopy in various illustrations. The apparel range consists of a short sleeve tee and pocket tee in mineral yellow and classic white, respectively. Also available are two variations on the jockey hat in black and heather  grey, each featuring a different character embroidered on the front. Rounding out the collection is the Torrey coach’s jacket in white, featuring a cobranded logo on the left chest.
