Arguably the largest skate brand in the world, Vans, has just announced their plans to introduce a brand new collection just in time for the summer, and judging by the designs, these shoes are perfect for the anyone looking for something a little more vivid than usual.
Paying homage to the brands “Off The Wall” design history, the Anaheim Factory Collection ushers back in design elements that were present on the original models that were once produced in Anaheim, California. Specifically, Vans is reissuing the “Stripes” aesthetic, most notably sported by legendary BMX athlete, Eddie Fiola, as well as the more minimalist “Summer Leaf” print. Interestingly, the palm print was originally offered in the ‘70s and was reissued through the Vault by Vans product line, however, this upcoming release will see it make its first debut within the Classics assortment.
Both of these OG prints will be landing on not only the Era 96 DX, but also the Sk8-Hi 138, meaning that no matter your preference when it comes to the ankle collar there will be something for you.
Take a look at the Anaheim Factory imagery below, if you like what you see then sit tight as the pairs are set to drop via retail stores, select accounts and Vans’ online shop this July.
