After premiering a “World Peace” short film in June, pro skater Justin Henry and Vans are continuing their wholesome collaborative efforts with a brand-new Style 36. Dubbed the “World Peace,” the co-created silhouette is understated and elegant — but not without a dose of powerful flair.

Built fully of white pebbled leather, uppers present an undeniably crisp tonal look. Signature embellishment arrives on the white laces, which offer a repeating “WORLD PEACE” print, done up in bold and blocky black letters. Rugged overlays spread across the toe cap, providing durability for all-day skate sessions. Tonal Vans tags sit under the white Jazz stripe, with a signature red rubberized badge gracing the white rubber midsole. To finalize the look, outsoles enlarge and split the “WORLD PEACE” print from the laces, with one word appearing on each shoe.

The shoes are also accompanied by a special tote bag with a jacquard cherub print, inspired by a vintage sewing bag gifted to Henry by his aunt. To further the collection’s ethos of giving back and world peace, Vans has also donated $10,000 USD to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio — Henry’s home state.

Look for the Justin Henry x Vans Style 36 and accompanying tote bag at Vans Skate stockists globally, and see the “World Peace” short film below.

Moving from skate to style, WACKO MARIA has embellished a limited run of Vans Authentics with printed graphics inspired by Japanese folklore.
