Vans has toyed with oversized branding several times in the past year, though this new take on the style may be the most understated take yet. A pair of Authentics and SK8-His sport oversized “OFF THE WALL” patches, with wildly different results.
The Authentics reimagine the classic Vans skateboard logo into an all-over print, with a red and black colorway both offering layered prints atop the canvas upper, contrasted with a conventional white midsole and laces. Meanwhile, the SK8-HIs come in bold yellow/blue or low-key black/white iterations, with solid-toned suede on the toe, tongue and heel and the brand’s iconic checkerboard towards the rear. Above the checkerboard, each shoe offers a three-dimensional, oversized skateboard logo, partially obscured by the leather Jazz Stripe.
