And feature bold abstract camo patterns.

NOAH and Vans have joined forces for two special takes on the under-the-radar Style 24 LX, a throwback skate shoe from the late ’80s. Each is dressed in an archival camouflage pattern, and nods to an influential place in skateboarding history: the famed Venice Beach curbs, a spot where legends like Natas Kupas and Eric Dressen cut their teeth that’s still in heavy use today.

One style uses a rich red base with black camouflage markings while the other opts for a more airy look with a white base below its black camo. The pattern selected was extremely specific — several Vans riders like the late Jeff Grosso wore silhouettes with a similar embellishment in the ’80s. Each also features a rubberized toe guard, a feature that was revolutionary at the time as it enabled skaters to get more durability and strength out of their footwear. High-gloss rubber midsoles with contrasting heel badges round off each look.

Both colorways of the NOAH x Vans Style 24 LX are set to release via the NOAH webstore come April 8. The MSRP has yet to be announced.
