Specifically, John Van Hamersveld has helped Vans create a new Vault by Vans lineup that’s heavy on nostalgia and bold, eye-catching design. Utilizing signature creations like Hamersveld’s beloved Wave print, Vans’ designers have created sneakers that are both casual and respectful towards their collaborator’s impressive, forward-thinking body of work. Most notably, Vault by Vans and John Van Hamersveld’s creative partnership introduces new spins on the OG Sk8-Hi LX and the OG Classic Slip-On LX — both of which appear to be the range’s standout pieces. For their collaborative line, Hamersveld’s timeless approach to art is what brings everything to life, even the t-shirt.
You can take a look at Vault by Vans and John Van Hamersveld’s new collaborative collection above, and head to the official Vans Vault website for more information. The collection’s wares will hit the shelves of select retailers on June 23.
Last month, the Vans Vault crew brought back Geoff Rowley’s original signature shoe.
