Nike recently unveiled two sneakers with oversized logos, which followed the announcement of a Gucci sneaker with supersized branding. Now, Vans has tossed its hat into the ring with a set of Sk8-His and Old Skools covered with a giant logo.
An all-black pair of Sk8-His and Old Skools and their inverted counterparts all feature enormous “VANS” branding in contrasting colors, a reissue of a past design. Aside from the print, the sneakers are tonally sound, with matching laces, soles and tongues — even the foxing on the midsole is whited or blacked out. The sneakers are executed in grain leather aside from the patch with the logo, which features tonal suede for a subtle contrast.
