As a nod to the long-forgotten VHS tape, Boston-based streetwear boutique Bodega teamed up with Vans to rework the classical Authentic, incorporating a nostalgic theme into its timeless design.

The co-branded edition of the iconic silhouette plays with various textures on the uppers, featuring a nylon quarter and an elevated suede toebox. Mimicking a traditional blank VHS box, an enlarged, white “V120” arrives on the lateral sides while the midsole is detailed with vintage box branding. The tongues are done up with a red and green see-through material which resemble the magnetic tape spool on the inside of each VHS tape. Rounding off the look, the inside is embellished with an anti-pirating sticker-inspired footbed and a RGB-colored outsole.

Besides the co-labeled sneakers, the pack also comes with a shoe box resembling a blank VHS case, and blank labels.

Priced at $105 USD, this collaborative iteration is set to be dropped on February 16 at the Bodega boutique and on its official website. An apparel collection will also be released at the same time. Make sure to mark your calendars.
