Though Richardson had an entire Vans collaboration all ready to go, the project was unfortunately canceled before completion. Nevertheless, we have imagery of the sneakers that would’ve released, which include nearly all of Vans’ signature models: the Old Skool, Slip-On, Era and Authentic. Prints and patterns dominate the range, with the Richardson Glyph printed across the Slip-On and Old Skool and a special dazzle camouflage emblazoned across the Era. The Authentic was designed with two military-inspired colorways, complete with A-1, 2 etc. midsole graphics as a nod to the printing process.

Unfortunately, the collaboration is unlikely to ever see release.

Vans’ most recent completed collection is a pair of Epoch Pro sneakers revamped by Yardsale.
