2014 seems to be the summer of the snake for Vans, and the Southern California brand has repping the reptilian skin all season. After releasing a “Snake” Collection that consisted of three staple silhouettes, the brand brings the Vans Slip-On “Snake” Pack. This set features a duo of Vans Slip-On style codes, each covered in snakeskin prints allover. Offered in both gold and silver, men and women can pick up either one of these Vans today for $ 55 at select retailers, including Feature.
Vans Classics is back with a fresh duo of Sk8-Hi Reissues for its new “Xtuff” pack for summer. Consisting of a black and white pair of the mid-cut silhouette, the Sk8-Hi Reissue “Xtuff” switches out the standard canvas upper for a more durable Xtuff reinforced canvas upper, making this a great option for skating in. Both the black and white colorways keep things tonal with matching rubber soles and contrasting tan linings and gum rubber, herringbone traction outsoles. Look for the “Xtuff” pack now at Vans’ online store.

Aligning with the Dark Side, Vans introduces two colorways of the Authentic featuring Boba Fett and Stormtrooper characters. The Boba Fett camo color-up enhances the bounty hunter’s disguise alongside the Death Star, Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper to paint a dark scene of the evil Empire. The second style surfaces in the Stormtrooper bandana print that mashes up one of Vans archived patterns with the Galactic Empire’s henchmen for a discreet, all-over arrangement. Yoda brings balance to the Force with his special takes on the Authentic and Sk8-Hi Reissue. Blended with Vans’ Hawaiian pattern and images of Yoda, the peaceful aloha motif covers the uppers of the low top and hits each quarter panel of the high top. As a tribute to the original film, Vans pairs the Classic Slip-On with the 1977 poster artwork from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and showcases the Era in comic-book style graphics from vintage Star Wars merchandise. Young Padawans and small Sith lords can enjoy the collection as well with kid and toddler-sized shoes featuring the Yoda-inspired art and comic-book graphics as well as two kids-specific Stormtrooper and Darth Vader prints.
As a tie back to Classics footwear, Vans x Star Wars will release an assortment of men’s apparel and women’s accessories this July. The men’s series highlights the Yoda aloha and Stormtrooper bandana prints across a selection of tees, with an additional cap, backpack and sock pack dedicated to Yoda’s special pattern. The women’s range of accessories will incorporate both sets of imagery into a focused, fashion-forward ensemble of backpacks and hats. Check out the full offering at Vans.
