Aside from the Vault by Vans OG line, the Anaheim Factory Collection might be our favorite line from the brand. While the OG line tends to have more premium materials, the Anaheim Factory Collection offers the most period-correct models you can get without getting your hands on vintage Made in the USA shoes. For the spring season, Vans is reintroducing the Style 73 to the DX line in three seasonal colorways.
For the spring release, Vans honors a beloved silhouette -- the Style 73. The Style 73 DX joins Vans’ Anaheim Factory reissue program, complete with a retro nod to the Vans sport-style of the early ’90s. Special features of the Style 73 DX convey high foxing, high gloss sidewall finish, suede uppers, a custom woven label and UltraCush sockliner for even more comfort and impact cushioning.
By borrowing details from the original models produced in the brand’s early years of footwear design, Vans offers the Anaheim Factory Collection with modernized comfort with upgraded UltraCush sockliners. The collection features throwback design details including utilizing the original style numbers and color palettes, reissued prints, higher-glossed foxing tape, cotton laces and original drill lining weight to complete the vintage aesthetic.
The Vans Anaheim Factory Collection Style 73 DX is available now at Vans.com and other Anaheim Factory Collection stockists globally.
