A slew of VANS options in several silhouettes and colorways hit the shelves. VANS was founded in 1966, and early shoes were manufactured in its Anaheim Factory, the name which the company uses for a line of shoes inspired by the early days. From this line of classics, we are offering an Old Skool 36 DX Corduroy model in black, a white and grey SK8-HI 38 DX, and two colorways of their Classic Slip-On 98 DX, one in navy and another in brown. Aside from those Anaheim Factory releases, a SK8-HI “Hairy Suede” edition arrives in dark navy and white, while another arrives in a light brown “sunflower” colorway. A monochrome Style 36 SF low top arrives with a flame logo on the lateral and medial panels with a white rubber toe cap and hits of black suede. The last offering is a new silhouette called the Staple Bold NI which keeps classic VANS styling with an over-sized formstripe and updated UltraCush liners.
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.

Suede pastel hues appear on a Sk8-Hi Slim and an Old Skool for women and one Classic Slip-On for men. Pink suede dominates the upper of the Sk8-Hi Slim for women, contrasted with a white stripe and tongue to pair with the classic white midsole. A second option for women is the Old Skool, which gets a suede sage green treatment across the upper with a white stripe, tongue, and midsole. For men, the Classic Slip-On appears in sepia rose suede and canvas across the upper with a soft white leather lining for added comfort.

Iconic looks from Vans work well in any season, and these options are no exception. Two Vans Classic Slip-Ons arrive in both black and white with a subtle snakeskin detail. The one-piece snakeskin-patterned leather upper in both colors has elastic and a padded collar for comfort over a signature Vans misdsole and gum waffle outsole. A sturdy black canvas and suede upper make up a Sk8-Hi with a white stripe and contrast stitching, while a low-top Old Skool takes the same approach with monochromatic black suede and a white stripe. For toddlers, we have a black classic Slip-On with a white sole, a throwback checkerboard Classic Slip-On and a velcro strapped black Sk8-Mid Mid Reissue V, providing ample options to keep the kids fresh for the summer.
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.
The entire collection will be available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. The men’s footwear will also be available tomorrow at noon at both Packer locations.

The Vans Anaheim Factory collection honors the home of their first warehouse with models that have vintage detailing. Factory releases highlight the location of the first Vans factory with the use of 10oz canvas with an upgraded UltraCrush lining and higher gloss foxing tape on a black Authentic 44 DX and a classic white Old Skool 36 DX. The heavier canvas and suede combo also appears on the Sk8-Hi 38 DX with an interplay of black on the eyestay, tongue, and heel and gray on the side panels with the Vans stripe in white.

Vans classics arrive in time for Spring with two Old Skool models and one Sk8-Hi. The two low top Old Skool silhouettes feature straightforward and iconic Vans styling in green with a white stripe and midsole and yellow with a white stripe and midsole. The Sk8-Hi high top appears in striking bright blue with a contrasting white stripe and midsole.
Vans provides an updated take on the Sk8-Hi Zip with the new Weave iteration. The shoe features a premium tonal black leather upper with a huarache weave replacing the traditional side stripe. Tonal waxed laces and a cream cupsole.
Spring brings a host of options for classic Vans silhouettes. For men, two monochrome models dropped: a white suede Half Cab and a Sk8-High DX “Armor Leather” with a cream snakeskin-like pattern in premium leather atop a white sole. Options for women are the Sk8-Hi Slim Zip in a light gray, which narrows the toe and adds a heel zipper and the Classic Slip-On, which pops in metallic resplendent silver.
