UPDATED [December 30, 2017]: In a recent Instagram post, Jerry Lorenzo announces he can neither confirm or deny the forthcoming partnership with the Swoosh brand. Take a look below and let us know your thoughts.


One of the most noteworthy sneaker drops to emerge in 2017 no doubt came from the collaborative effort between Vans and Fear of God.
