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.

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.
