Vans has teamed up with American hip-hop collective A Tribe Called Quest on an expansive six-shoe collection that features the Vans Authentic, Sk8-Hi, Era, Old Skool and Slip-On models. The collaborative colorways nod to ATCQ members Q-Tip, the late Phife Dawg, Jarobi White and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, featuring the group’s signature stick figures and album cover artwork.

Some sneakers feature special embroidery at the heel counter, one model boasts motifs referencing the song “Bonita Applebum,” another with a print using the album art of The Anthology, and two models sport all-black and black/red leather uppers. Each sneaker has collaborative ATCQ insoles and comes in adult, kids and toddler sizes.

The A Tribe Called Quest x Vans collection will have a general release on April 6 with prices ranging from $37 to $85 USD. An exclusive pre-release will take place at the House of Vans in Brooklyn as part of a two-day pop-up event from March 30 to 31. For more collaborative goods, check out the SOPHNET. x Vans Zip-Up Sk8-Mids capsule.
