Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand is proud to team up with BAPE®, the iconic Japanese streetwear pioneers for a second collection. With shared roots of street culture and self-expression, this heritage is brought to life with a collision of iconic identities resulting in an apparel and footwear collection that redefines classic silhouettes.
BAPE®has been bringing Japanese streetwear to the world since 1993. Founded in the fashion melting pot that is Shibuya, Tokyo, BAPE®started out making limited run tees, rooted in street and counterculture. BAPE®is now a worldwide streetwear institution known for their signature camo patterns and is the embodiment of creative expression through attitude and design.
The collection includes a remastering of two of Vans’ most iconic footwear styles – the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool. The elevated Sk8-Hi 38 DX features a combination of colors across the pair. A statement, mismatched style with a custom ABC Camo pattern unique to this collaboration. The Old Skool 36 DX, a staple in the Vans line-up, features a simple suede canvas body and BAPE®’s most iconic ABC Camo.
Tying up the capsule are two limited tees in understated black and white with logo detailing and popping with a vibrant illustration of the Vans x BAPE® Sk8-Hi. Celebrating two pillars of the streetwear scene coming together as one.
The Vans x BAPE® limited capsule will be available beginning February 26. The collection will be sold exclusively at Vans and BAPE® retail stores and at Vans.com and Vans.eu. For more information and where to purchase, please visit The Drop List, a calendar of Vans’ most exclusive product drops
