Vault by Vans and Noon Goons have joined forces for a three-shoe capsule that epitomizes classic California cool. Both brands boast deep SoCal roots while toing the line between skate, surf, and several other West Coast subcultures, so their pairing is a serendipitous one — and it’s produced fresh takes on the Slip-On, Style 36 and Sk8-Hi, each with elevated materials and striking embellishments.
The collection’s crown jewel is the Slip-On, a sleek silhouette that’s done up in rich crushed blue velvet with a black sole and a white Noon Goons hit embroidered on the back. Even the insoles are dashingly detailed, bosting Noon Goons’ signature leopard print. The Style 36 — Vans‘ first ever silhouette with the now-iconic Jazz stripe — arrives in black and white with a stark black snakeskin base, Noon Goons script on the heel and crisp white accents on the midfoot and midsole. Lastly the Sk8-Hi retains the snakeskin-printed leather of the Style 36 but flips the color scheme, opting for black Jazz stripes and Noon Goons heel hits atop its white base.
The Vault by Vans x Noon Goons collection is set to arrive at Vault by Vans stockists including Bodega, Wish, Concepts, Hirshleifers, Sneakersnstuff, Stashed, Blends, Sole Classics, Kith, Social Status, A Ma Maniere, Fice, Feature, Dover Street Market, Belmont Shore, Proper, Rooted, and Elden on April 15. Prices are set at $115 USD for the Slip-On, $125 USD for the Style 36 and $135 USD for the Sk8-Hi.
