Vans teams up with J. Crew on a pair of Old Skools that will be right at home in any closet.
American clothier J. Crew continues it's ongoing collaboration with Vans with a versatile suede Slip On. The pair boasts premium navy suede in an embossed classic checkerboard patterned vamp. The shoe sits on a stripeless foxed mid that is in a vintage off white color.
The J. Crew x Vans Slip On Embossed Suede Checkerboard is available for preorder now at J. Crew stores as well as online. They are expected to ship March 1. Retail is $70.
J. Crew has a long history of collaborating with brands on models that are quickly snatched up by collectors and resellers. Their projects with Vans have generally been under-appreciated by the masses. Their last denim pack however, was popularized by Nick Wooster and there was a noticeable difference in sold out pairs on the website. With that, J. Crew has created a tonal pack with Vans that consists of a solid blocked suede upper on top of a vintage, off-white stripeless midsole. The pack is available in both navy and black and we think the latter is sure to be a swift seller.
The J. Crew for Vans Tonal Sk8 Hi Suede Pack is scheduled to be available in October from J. Crew stores as well as online. They retail for $70.
J. Crew and Vans have a long history of collaborations that are easily paired with men's everyday styles. Today, J. Crew released their Indigo Collection which includes two custom denim styles. Launching with two classic silhouettes, we see deep indigo and a lighter wash paired smartly on both the Authentic and Slip On. The J. Crew for Vans Two-Tone Denim Pack is available now exclusively at J. Crew.
