This year, Vans Vault celebrates its 10th anniversary as a timeless collection inspired by street fashion, art, music and Vans‘ forty-plus years of skateboarding heritage. A premium line based on Vans’ archival designs, but updated with modern, skate-ready twists, Vault has has also managed to compile an impressive list of collaborations with designers, artists and labels — partners such as Disney, Diemme, Saint Alfred, Pendleton, WTAPS, Taka Hayashi, BLENDS and DQM among others that, in their own way, have influenced street culture as we know it. One of the greatest aspects of Vault has been its ability to traverse high and low, and provide a platform of discourse, education and creativity for both lesser known entities as well as the industry heavyweights. Vans Vault’s agenda of respect and creativity has yielded some interesting highlights along the way from both the brand and material side, notably leading the way and setting the tone for a high-fashion penetration into sneakers dating back to the original Marc Jacobs project.

To commemorate Vans Vault’s 10 years in existence, we’re taking a look back with some of the line’s most notable partners in crime — from TET of WTAPS to Bows and Arrows’ Jerry Harris, and DQM’s Chris Keeffe — for a series of reflections on the Vans brand, their favorite collaborations, and Vans Vault’s impact on today’s street and skateboarding scene.
