Vans and Discovery have come together on a select footwear range to celebrate this year’s Shark Week. Comprised of a Sk8-Hi and Slip-On, proceeds from the collaborative collection will support Oceana’s mission to protect the world’s oceans and the sharks that call them home.
The Sk8-Hi is centered around a powerful shark print that plays on Vans’ iconic side stripe detail. Constructed of canvas and suede, the shoe features re-enforced toecaps, padded collars, and rubber waffle outsoles paired with contrasting white sole foxing. The canvas upper found on the accompanying Slip-On is decorated with a playful illustrated shark print marked with polka dot and stripe patterns. Detailing on the shoe comes in the form of elastic side accents, padded collars and the rubber waffle outsole contrasting white sole foxing pairing once again.
Priced at $65 and $75 USD, the Discovery Shark Week x Vans collection is available now at vans.com and select retailers.
In case you missed it, New Balance’s M991FDS Made in England recently received a “Olive/Tan” makeover.
