Anaheim is a byword for Vans with exceedingly good quality and plenty of original design elements, and its latest “Hot Lips” pack proves exactly this.

Comprising Vans’ Old Skool 36 DX, Slip-On 98 DX and SK8-Hi 38 DX, as well as a small capsule of clothing items, the “Hot Lips” collection taps into the So Cal imprint’s skateboarding roots and sub-cultural adoptions. The look is rock, grunge, subverted and punk, but of course works in a variety of other scenarios, for example as a late Valentine’s Day present.

Each sneaker builds upon Vans’ Anaheim tooling, meaning the pairs come with the first style number, the original drill lining weight, higher glossed foxing tape, high-quality materials, and an overall more perfected finish. Finished in black with red lips printed all over the heavyweight canvas uppers, the pairs are contrasted by their white midsoles and archetype waffle outsoles, rounded out with the license plate on the rear.

In addition to the sneakers, Vans is offering two T-shirts, a short sleeve “Hot Lips” printed shirt, a chore shirt-jacket with lip embroidery on the collar and contrast white stitching, as well as a hoodie and a pair of skater pants. Take a closer look at the Vans “Hot Lips” collection in the gallery above, and shop the entire collection on size?’s website now.
