While A Tribe Called Quest called an end to its musical playing days earlier this year, that hasn’t stopped the group from collaborating with Vans on a new sneaker. Entitled “Bonita”, after one of their hit songs from the classic People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, the Sk8-Hi silhouette was teased on the group’s Instagram and previewed at ComplexCon over this past weekend. Comprised of an off-white/cream suede upper and white mid/outsoles, it’s a very clean take on one of the most recognizable Vans silhouettes.

The group released its final studio album We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service back in 2016.

Check out the special collab between Vans and the Queens hip-hop group below. Another collaborative project that was on showcase in Long Beach, California was the atmos x Nike “Animal Pack” — go check it out and let us know your thoughts.
