We are back with another collaborative project with Vans. The Sneakersnstuff x Vans ”London Pack” is our second Vault release with Vans and this time we decided to work on two classic silhouettes – the Old Skool LX and the SK8-Hi LX.
Since we opened up our store in Shoreditch we’ve had a bunch of near death experiences. Why you might think? Well, they do drive their cars on the ”wrong” side of the road! One thing we’ve learned is to look both right and left before walking over the street. You can’t be safe enough!
Both the Sneakersnstuff x Vans Old Skool LX ”London” and the Sneakersnstuff x Vans SK8-Hi LX ”London” are made in highland suede with a screen printed ”Look Left, Look Right” checkerboard pattern. Scotchgard™ Protector by 3M will keep you dry while walking the streets of London and both shoes comes with three sets of laces. The yellow and red accent colors comes from the single/double yellow lines and red routes on the roads in London.
For our first release we designed a skate deck that was given away to friends and family. Of course we will release a deck this time as well and we will release a few of them on our website on the release day.
The Sneakersnstuff x Vans ”London Pack” will be released in very limited numbers October 17th as part of the Vans Vault program. This is a Sneakersnstuff worldwide exlcusive that will be available at all Sneakersnstuff locations and online at Sneakersnstuff.com.
The Sneakersnstuff x Vans OG Classic Slip-On LX ”Stockholm” is our first collaboration with Vans.
Of course we looked to our hometown for inspiration. When the skateboard culture first appeared in Stockholm it was on Sergels Torg, or Plattan as most people from Stockholm calls it, you would find it. Taking the iconic Vans Slip-On with its black and white checkerboard pattern and just twist it to celebrate Plattan as a classic landmark in Stockholm with its characteristic triangular black and white pattern felt like a very natural thing to do.
The Sneakersnstuff x Vans OG Classic Slip-On LX ”Stockholm” features an upper in traditional canvas with a black and white triangular pattern on it. We made the lining in pigskin leather to give a more premium feeling. This Vans Vault limited edition release features the Vans and the SNS logo on the insoles, and also on the classic flag on the outside.
And to celebrate the history of the shoe, we also made 50 limited edition skate decks with the triangular pattern on one side, and the Vans Off the Wall logo plus the SNS logo on the other. The decks will be given away to Friends & Family of Vans and Sneakersnstuff, but we will also of course give our customers a chance to win one.
The Sneakersnstuff x Vans OG Classic Slip-On LX ”Stockholm” will be released in very limited numbers as part of the Vans Vault program – and only available at Sneakersnstuff May 9th.
In the movie that we have created for the launch of the Sneakersnstuff x Vans OG Classic Slip-On LX ”Stockholm” we have Mogge and Sofia from the Sneakersnstuff crew to guide you to some of our favourite spots in Stockholm.
