Vans Vault and WTAPS are looking to celebrate some important milestones. While the popular footwear label is already on its 50th anniversary, the highly-respected Japanese label is fast approaching its 20th year. To continue the duo’s collaborative efforts, we now see them coming together again for a series of footwear and apparel releases. For sneakers, we get some anaconda skin-effect low models and the highly-recognizable OG Sk8-Hi LX, OG Chukka Boot LX and OG Authentic LX kicks in the familiar crossbones motif — the pattern is straight from the archives, which we’ve already seen in previous releases. They’re quite popular for those familiar with the collab, so expect them to go in a blink of an eye.

Furthermore, the drop will include a military outerwear piece also adorned with the crossbones pattern. It’s printed with the text, “Vans #1 Waffle Lovers Club” at the back as a respectful nod to the duo’s collaboration. Expect the snake-effect models to release on August 27. As for the crossbone-designed sneakers and jacket, watch out for their drop on September 10 at select Vans Vault x WTAPS retailers.
