UPDATE (September 11, 2019): RETROSUPERFUTURE and Vans have unveiled two pairs of RFS’ Smile sunglasses that will drop alongside the upcoming OG Style 43 XL sneaker collaboration. The two pairs take inspiration from the bold colors used in the footwear drop, utilizing hues such as “Crystal Khaki” with “Acid Green” and a “Black Crystal” acetate with “Pungent Purple” for a duo of retro-tinged glasses.

Both pairs feature engraved dual-branding on the arms in either green or purple. Retail on each pair is approximately $196 USD and you can pick them up from retailers like Sneakersnstuff on September 15.

Original Story (August 28, 2019): Last year, contemporary eyewear brand RETROSUPERFUTURE introduced a new line of sunglasses to commemorate Starbucks’ landmark Reserve Roastery in Milan. This time, RETROSUPERFUTURE is teaming up with Vans for a new take on the OG Style 43 XL silhouette.

The collaborative Vans will be available in two colorways: White/”Neon Green” and Black/”Deep Purple.” Retaining the footwear brand’s classic canvas construction, the sneaker’s toeboxes are covered in suede overlays for a textural contrast, lending the sleek shoe a rugged touch. The all-white and black uppers make for a versatile contrast against the eye-catching green and purple semi-transparent soles, which grant the sneakers a playful edge. “RETROSUPERFUTURE” branding graces the sides of the soles, the front of the shoes and the tongue, driving the collaborative nature home.

Take a look at the RETROSUPERFUTURE x Vans sneakers in the gallery above. Expect the shoes to be released on September 13 via 43eninhalb’s online store for €84.95 (approx. $95 USD).

Recently, Vans prepped a pair of similarly color-blocked Era Vault silhouettes.
