The Vans California Collection instills the spirit of Americana and the laidback beach lifestyle into our assortment of Classic Vans styles with a sophisticated mix of materials and premier palette of prints. Fall 2013 continues this tradition with a trio of new, vintage-inspired Authentics in the Checker pack. The renowned checkerboard motif progresses from our iconic Slip-On onto three colorways of the celebrated low-top, lace-up. The Authentic CA resurfaces this season in Mango/White, True Blue/Red and Waterfall/White washed canvas varieties. Square-cut leather laces, white eyelets and tonal binding complete each pair for delivery this June at select California Collection retailers.
A tribute to iconic Vans co-founder James Van Doren, who passed away in October of 2011, Vans CA’s Van Doren Series focuses on looking into the companies archives for inspiration in silhouettes and prints; for this release, a retro American flag patterned Authentic CA. The first release for 2013, this all over distressed flag print is an instant classic, with a perfect combination of pattern applied to silhouette for a cohesive look. Finished off with an enzyme wash treatment and the original Van Doren heeltab branding, the “Retro Flag” Authentic Ca will hit select Vans California stockists this March.
Set to release at the Agenda show in Long Beach, CA, Herschel Supply Co. and New Balance give us a taste of what their collaborative effort looks like. The red backpack seems to be reminiscent of their H710 model – complete with New Balance sneakers in a matching colorway.
Vans releases its California LP Penny Loafer CA for the first time as part of its Spring/Summer 2012 push and you can pick up a pair at participating retailers this week.
