Global shoe brand Vans has reunited with brand ambassador and Grammy-winning musician Anderson .Paak for their third collection.
The Vans x Anderson .Paak ‘Vanderson’ collection takes inspiration from past collections as well as the present day, looking to encapsulate Vans’ ‘Off The Wall’ mentality. The latest range between both Vans and Anderson looks to capture both the former’s timeless nature as well as the latter’s one-of-one creative style and outlook, with this selection of footwear and apparel being inspired by heritage, creativity, and a sense of community. Utilising his friends and family for the campaign, Anderson included American actress Marsai Martin as well as his family, including his son, sister and nieces and nephew.
This collaboration offers up three sneakers, with the first being Anderson’s signature EPaak Sport sneaker. This pair combines Vans’ ‘Off The Wall’ style with a black paisley print, which is layered over black suede, with other details including a gusseted tongue, waffle sole, double stitching, drop-in sock liner, as well as custom foxing details. The second pair arriving with the collection sees the Vans Authentic sneaker come in a simple sand paisley-print iteration, whilst the final Old Skool 36 DX sneaker arrives in a muted khaki green. In regards to the apparel, some standouts include a ‘Vanderson’ tie-dye t-shirt, a pair of straight-leg paisley-print flared trousers, in addition to a matching paisley-print ‘Vanderson’ jacket.
The ‘Vanderson’ Collection is set to be available to purchase via the Vans website on June 24th.
