Vans has pulled inspiration from one of its old school traditions with the release of its new Mismatch Era pack, rekindling the days of “Dogtown” when skateboarders could visit the company’s then-fledgling shop in Southern California and replace their worn-out kicks with any new colorway. This resulted in the unprecedented style of mixing and matching the durable skate sneakers, which the brand has tapped into with its latest collection by way of eclectic, zebra and camouflage-printed editions.

Alongside the Era, Vans has also offered up playful takes on its Style 36 and Classic Slip-On silhouettes. Each shoe is crafted in the traditional canvas fabrication along the upper and contrasted with a white rubber midsole, while a two-tone design brings in a vibrant aesthetic throughout the pack. The Era pairs panels of solid blue against green camo on the left, while the right sneaker is coated in pink and zebra stripes. Style 36 also alternates between the exotic animal patterns, while details in black and blue keep the palette earthy. Meanwhile, the Classic Slip-On with its green camo and solid black paneling offers the most subtle take of the bunch.

The Mismatch Pack is priced at $60 USD for the Era and $65 USD for Style 36 which can both be shopped now at Vans’ website, while the Classic Slip-On is only available in select retail stores.

Elsewhere, Vans recently teamed up with artist Zhao Zhao for a “Year of the Rat” collection to commemorate the Lunar New Year.
