Vans and NEEDLES have reunited for three new renditions of Slip-Ons. Marking the second collaboration since 2018, a trio of luxe velvet-tinged iterations, the two labels have opted for bold animal prints for this release.
Set in colorways of bronze, white and black, the shoes feature zebra and leopard prints on one foot each, for a subtle asymmetrical look. Each pair comes with contrasting metallic embellishments of loops and tassels that hang from the upper forefoot, mirroring the designs of traditional loafers. Tonal top-stitching has been given to all three pairs, seen on the sleek leather piping that run along the edges of their tongues. To round off the designs, the shoes get vulcanized midsoles, co-branded insoles and Vans’ classic waffled outsoles for added comfort and support.
The NEEDLES x Vans Slip-Ons will be available on September 12 on NEEDLES’ website for $122 USD.
