A few months ago, we got a glimpse at an Authentic JP from M. HOOLYWOOD out of Japan. Now, we get full images and purchasing info.
N. HOOLYWOOD chose the Authentic silhouette with a white and turtle dove premium leather and suede upper. While we love the color and material blocking, the typography work is what jumps at you. N. HOOLYWOOD went with a calligraphy styled printing of a sentence every designer is familiar with: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
This is a sentence that is used to display typography because it uses all 26 letters of the English alphabet. It's a great choice to show their design roots and it really speaks to us. And everyone knows we like midsole printing. The word work is printed on the laces, midsole, and, something we have never seen before, around the top edge of the foot hole. Pretty awesome stuff.
The N. HOOLYWOOD x Vans Authentic JP is available now from the MISTER HOLLYWOOD webstore. Retail price is 17,280¥ (~$157USD) and they are going fast.
Some time ago, we brought you the initial images of one of the things Vans had planned for their big 50th anniversary. Back then, we didn't have any release information to report. We are extremely happy to say that the time has come.
The first wave of the 50th Anniversary Pro Classics will consist of the red/white Duke Kahanamoku Authentic Pro '66, the navy blue Authentic Pro '74, the red/blue Era Pro '76 (the first ever "Off the Wall" shoe), Tony Alva's blue Mid Skool Pro '79, and Spicoli's classic checkerboard Slip On Pro '82. The special 50th anniversary black/gold Sk8 Hi Pro and Authentic Pro is thrown in for good measure. All of the 50th Anniversary Pro Classics come with updated materials and the new UltraCush HD Pro insoles with special 50th Anniversary branding.
The initial offering from the Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics Collection will be available tomorrow March 16th, from retailers like The Vans DQM General in NYC. This is a global release and while they will be widely available from Vans retail stores and dealers, not all stores will have them in stock. Check your local retailer for availability.
Russia's Gosha Rubchinskiy teams up with Vans Vault for another collaboration this season. Dropping in three colorways, the Authentic LX is constructed of cotton canvas with contrasting stitching with red Gosha branding in cyrillic on the heel cap. A black mid and outsole with red Vans heeltab finishes off all three.
The Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Vault Authentic LX for SS16 is available now from Dover Street Market, both in store and online. Retail is $145.
It might be winter, but it's 90º somewhere, and Vans is gearing up for warmer weather. They have release a new Late Night Pack with a very spring feel. The pack consists of various Authentics and Slip Ons with printed photos of desserts and food. Vans has the whole food pyramid covered with macaroons, pizza, french fries, and donuts. A couple standouts from this pack are the Sk8 Hi and Slip On with stylized cheeseburger graphics and classic checkerboard pattern. The graphics remind us of the ultra limited Cobra Snake x Colette Era from a few years back.
The Vans Classics Late Night Pack is available now from Vans.com in sizes for everyone in your family. Check your local shop for in store availability.
Russian fashion phenom Gosha Rubchinskiy has exploded on to the scene in the last 12 months. He recently unveiled his Spring/Summer 2016 line and the stock photos of the clothing, while very Reebok-heavy, also included one frame with a pair of black/black Authentics with white foxing stripe. While many in the community have had their fill of 2015's Black Sole Epidemic, most would probably make an exception for a Gosha Rubchinskiy Authentic. There are also rumors of white, red, and teal but we haven't seen anything concrete on those yet.
More to follow in the coming days, we are sure.
The 003 releases of the WTAPS x Vans Syndicate collab were not highly coveted when they released all those years ago. In the last 5 or so years, their popularity has skyrocketed with some deadstock models fetching upwards of $500. From that pack, one colorway remained pretty elusive. It was even a joke amongst collectors to not tell the uninitiated the true colorway name. It's not not uncommon to see the black and white colorways of the "Wings' Authentics to pop up for sale, but the gold pair almost never comes around. We think that is why Vans chose to reissue this colorway of the 003 Wings and not the white or black.
The updated version of the WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Authentic 'S' Reissue will arrive with an extended OG style foxing, premium suede on the toe and heelcaps, and the UltraCush HD footbeds. No news on the box, but we expect to see the same white 10th anniversary drawer-box we have seen with the other reissues.
The WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Authentic 'S' Reissue will arrive at Syndicate retailers globally on Saturday, November 14th. Check your local core skate shop for stocking info.
