After nodding to music culture through an Authentic capsule with WACKO MARIA and traveling to Germany for an Old Skool 36 DX project with Coutié, Vans is adding to its collaborative arm through a new initiative with New Jersey’s NJ Skateshop. The footwear and apparel collection serve as a homage to Sayre & Fisher Brick Co. — the iconic brick imprint that built the base of the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center, and also fashioned the bricks for every east coast city from Richmond to Boston.

The headliners of the capsule certainly fall under the footwear category. Three silhouettes including the Vans Half Cab, Slip-On Pro and Crockett High Pro have all been designed to translate the aesthetic of a brick. Actual shapes of the aforementioned building block is debossed onto the suede uppers of each installment, all of which have been coated in its natural rustic orange hue. “NJ CO” notations are also present here through debossed stamps on the heels of the Half Cabs and Slip-Ons and the lateral heel of the Crockett High Pros. Moreover, each iteration is complemented by a clean white midsoles.

Alongside the kicks is a short-sleeved t-shirt that is adorned with 3D “NJ CO” brick graphic and Vans branding.

Expect the collection to drop on March 20 via the at NJ Skateshop stores in New Brunswick and Jersey City, on the NJ Skateshop site, and at select skate shops across the US on March 27.

For additional sneaker news, Vans recently partnered up with Penn for a tennis-inspired collection.
