New for the summer 2016 season, Vans has teamed up with California women's brand Summer Bummer for a collection of shoes, apparel, and accessories for all of Waffle Girls out there. There are some really great styles with unique branding accents and comfy pieces for the season.
Vans Vans and designer Alexandra Cassaniti have joined forces to channel the endless summer with the Vans X Summer Bummer collaboration. Showcasing Summer Bummers bold black-and-white aesthetic, the Summer Bummer Dazie Hi features a deconstructed high-top canvas silhouette with glow-in-the-dark details, water-based inks and glues, removable and washable comfy UltraCush Eco footbeds, and classic rubber waffle outsoles with single-wrapped foxing tape for lightweight comfort.
The Summer Bummer x Vans collection is available now from Vans.com. Sorry big footers, these are in runs of women's sizes only.
Vans Surf is is mostly known for the US Open of Surfing held annually in Huntington Beach, CA. They are also well known for their comfortable footwear lines, heavy on the flip flop and slide, as well as ultra lightweight, thin walled canvas slip ons. They have stepped out of that box and partnered with designer and surfer Alex Kopps for two new signature models that appeal to a more grown-up mindset.
Alex chose two chukka silhouettes on which to ply his trade. The Desert Chukka takes the high road, with the more traditional chukka styling, with full grain leather uppers and makes use of Ultracush footbeds and the brand new Ultracush Wave outsole. The Desert Point is a lower-cut model, but still achieves the chukka look by employing a suede upper with smooth lines and minimal stitching.
Alex Kopps x Vans Surf Desert Point and Desert Chukka is available at Vans.com and select Vans Surf retailers around the country. The Desert Point is already sold out online, so if you want a pair, get to a brick and mortar.
Each year in Huntington Beach, CA, Vans partners with the city to host the US OPEN of Surfing competition, a key stop in the World Surf League Men's Qualifying Series as well as a major mid-season stop in the Women's Championship Tour. To coincide with the huge event, Vans delivers a collection of commemorative footwear and apparel.
For the 2015 US OPEN of Surfing, Vans has designed an Authentic with a black and white wave motif upper. The Authentic has a repeating pattern of playful, hand-drawn white waves on a high contrasting black background. The all canvas upper sits atop a pure white midsole with black foxing stripe. Original Waffle Sole outer finishes off this pair.
Alongside the Authentic, Vans is also releasing two Vans 2015 US OPEN of Surfing dual branded Hanelie.
The Vans 2015 US OPEN of Surfing Authentic and Hanelei is available now at select Vans stores and online. You can also pick up either pair as well as the entire collections consisting up around 30 pieces of apparel at the 2015 US OPEN of Surfing held from July 25th - August 2nd in Huntington Beach, CA.
