Vans x Quartersnacks 11/11 11:59:59

  Vans is proud to present a collection with New York’s Quartersnacks that captures the spirit of what both brands stand for: skateboarding as the ultimate outlet for creative self-expression, a form of escapism, and a celebration of the eternally youthful mindset of skating the streets, day-in and day-out.    Quartersnacks got its start as just that—a constant, relatable source for skaters in New York City and the surrounding area during a time of great uncertainty. Today, 15 years later, Quartersnacks has expanded beyond those humble beginnings, as a staple in skateboard culture and style. A shared DNA takes shape...

Vans x Sci Fi Fantasy

Founded on creative self-expression, Vans leans into Jerry’s mind-melting world of Sci-Fi and the places and eras in which he draws inspiration, recently captured in a short film following his creative process, and our latest limited-edition collection, Vans LTD x Sci-Fi Fantasy. The collection leads with a two-tone Sk8-Hi Pro that takes direction from a pair of vintage shoes, reflected in the modern execution of retro colorways. Sci-Fi’s “X” logo —a nod to the brand’s affinity for ‘90s digital tech designs — appears on the quarter of the shoe, as well as across a jersey and hat in the collection....
