A few years back, Vans Vault partnered with Major League Baseball to present the Opening Day Pack. That pack was a super limited run of only 12 pairs each of specific teams which were only available in their respective cities. Now, just a few days ahead of the 2016 All Star Game in San Diego, CA, Vans releases another more widely available collection for fans of America's pastime.
The teams were chosen by merchandising numbers and include the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants. The Authentic gets the all-over logo treatment from all eight teams. The solid canvas uppers are coordinated with the logos to represent the team colors.
Vans and MLB also wanted to highlight the classic east coast vs west coast type of rivalry by doing and additional Sk8 Hi with the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees team logos adorning the quarters.
The Major League Baseball x Vans collection will be available tomorrow July 9th at select Vans and Tilly's retailers in those team's respective markets as well as online at Vans.com. Additionally, you can find the collection tomorrow, in store only, at BLENDS San Diego location and at Petco Park during the game on Tuesday.
