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.

Vans Era (BMX Checkerboard) – True Blue/Red ($55)
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.
