Vans is paying homage to its Southern Californian roots with the release of a quartet of sneakers under its Anaheim Factory division, notably tapping Hoffman California Fabrics for the vibrant materials used.
The collection remasters the Sk8-Hi, Era, Old Skool, and Authentic silhouettes, dressing each in premium prints and hand-dyed textiles that have been developed by Hoffman California Fabrics. All four pairs adopt a surf culture aesthetic, livening up the sneakers with floral patterns and beachy hues.
Vans Anaheim has also looked to its archive for this collection, incorporating vintage details such as a higher foxing tape and glossed sidewalls. Elsewhere, the sneakers are fitted with an OrthoLite sock liner which ensures optimum comfort.
The Old Skool and Sk8-Hi also sport a Jazz stripe made from premium white leather, while all four pairs are finished with the classic license plate at the rear of the heel. Signature Vans branding graces all pairs as well, with the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi sporting a tongue tag and the Authentic and Era adopting a small Vans tag on the mid-panel.
Take a look a the Vans Anaheim Factory 2020 collection in the gallery above, and is expected to drop in Vans stores and on the Vans website sometime this August.
