Vans is certainly no stranger to animals prints. Cheetah fur has long adorned many iterations of the Sk8 Hi and Old Skool. The higher tier models through Vault have also had their share of animals lending their coif to the design, including Taka Hayashi models and and an all pony hair Sk8 Hi LX from a few years back. For February, Vault revisits these elements for the Slip On and Sk8 Hi LX silhouettes with three prints each.
The OG Slip On 59 LX pairs will all three be dressed in pony hair of different prints accompanied by deluxe leather piping and blocking to break up the patterns. Boasting zebra, leopard, and a lynx pattern, the pairs seem to scream "SLP," at us.
As for the OG Sk8 Hi LX, the pony hair is much more subdued and is relegated to the jazz stripe only. The prints are paired will with tonal uppers: black leather and zebra, rusty red leather and lynx, and a turtle dove grey leather with leopard.
The Vans Vault OG Slip On 59 and OG Sk8 Hi LX Animal Print collection will be available at Vans Vault accounts only starting next week. Check your local stockist for availability. Retail will be $100 and $120 per pair.
