Saint Alfred and Vans team up for an “Acid” patterned Vault OG Authentic LX sneaker, taking a unique spin on the classic silhouette.

After digging through Vans’ archives, Saint Alfred found an “Acid” print and applied it to the sneaker’s canvas upper. The acid wash on the exterior gives a nod to Vans’ hometown, as well as Southern California’s surf and skate culture, while the midsole is wrapped with the sneaker brand’s iconic checkerboard print. Released in two colorways, Acid/Black and Acid/Pesto, the sneakers stay true to a local Chicago-based aesthetic while paying homage to Vans’ beginnings. Chicago artist Ben Marcus also collaborated with the Saint Alfred design team to create a limited edition risograph print that will come with any purchase.

The Acid/Black sneaker will be available at Saint Alfred and its sister store KICKS/HI on August 9. If any pairs remain after Chicago store sales, they will be released on saintalfred.com at 2 p.m. EST. The even more limited Acid/Pesto sneaker will only be available in-store.

For more from Vans, Coutié customized a line of Old Skool Vans sneakers with the label’s signature “Old C Logo.”
