Vans recently collaborated with London-based designer Ashley Williams on a series of vibrant styles, including a unique tiger-printed Era sneaker. Now, the brand is reinventing the classic low-top silhouette with tie-dye, bringing on a trio of ’70s-inspired styles for its latest capsule.
The Vans Tie Dye pack is inspired by San Francisco‘s famed Haight and Ashbury streets, in which the colorful hand-dyed pattern has been a prominent technique for decades. Vans relied upon digital printing to execute the eclectic design of each shoe, which is offered in three bold colorways of red, yellow and green. The vibrant primary-hued palette is accentuated with a black binding stripe along the tongue, as well as black laces. Each shoe also features white eyelets, which provide a small neutral touch. The usual double-stitched upper remains in tact, as well as traditional branding hits on the insole, quarter logo and heel logo areas.
Expect the Tie Dye collection to be available in Vans stores and online at Vans.com beginning in March.
In the meantime, take a look at Vans’ pink and blue tie-dye pack which incorporates the Authentic, Sk8-Hi and Slip-On silhouettes.
