Nothing to see here, just a classic pair of sneakers in an equally classic colorway. Far from a collab, not expensive and easy to get, the Vans Old Skool White Canvas/Gum is exactly that with not much more explanation needed. The picnic pairing of colors may be more summer than fall, but hey, sunny days still go up in the cooler weather. Rocking to skate or rocking to rock, pairs are available now at Sneaker Politics.

Vans fans can spiff up their usual sneaker collection with these shoes upon their June 1st release.

Founder of Juxtapoz Magazine and the influential artist behind the “lowbrow” style of expression, Robert Williams partners with Vans Vault for a visibly psychedelic new collection.
Consisting of budding editions of the Authentic 44 Reissue, Sk8-Hi 38 Decon LX and Slip-On 98 Reissue, the Robert Williams x Vans Vault Collection draws from three of Williams’ most revered paintings -“Flaming Cobras,” “Malfeasance,” and “Jalapeña.”
The footwear collection – which releases alongside special edition t-shirts and a Fender Stratocaster Guitar – lands on July 23 at select retailers including Feature.
Although much of the focus for Vans as of late has been squarely placed on the emergence of the Old Skool, they did find time to outfit the Sk8-Hi in a new maroon execution.
Dubbed the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip “Port Royale” edition, monotone goodness flows across the vintage style in a modernized aesthetic ripe for summer. A tonal midsole and matching laces finishes this new take on the Sk8-Hi.
Moderately priced at $ 80, give this new drop from Vans a look below and pick up a pair now at select retailers.

Vans got down with celebrity stylist Robert Verdi to create a line of slip-ons inspired by Verdi’s favourite Hermes scarfs. The famous opulent and even garish patterns on Hermes’ silk scarves are as iconic as Vans themselves. Thus it was only fitting for Vans and Verdi to meet over such a concept. Although not an official Hermes collaboration these slip-ons are simply a bespoke art project between two style minded entities.
