Breana Geering is one of the hottest newcomers to come out of Canada’s burgeoning skateboarding scene, and now the British Columbia native has worked with Vans on a skate-centric capsule collection.

Centered around two sneakers — the Skate Old Skool and Skate Era — Geering’s collaboration puts a focus on wearability. “I wanted it to be special and personal. I really made it my own by adding in some of my own little doodles to the back of the shoe and the insole. I really wanted to make a nice, simple shoe that people would be stoked to wear, to skate or to the bar,” said Geering.

The capsule is a nod to gender neutrality, as nothing in the capsule is geared towards a certain person or orientation. Instead, it’s about being able to look good and skate well in something that’s comfortable no matter who you are. As a result, we find a “Port”-colored Skate Old Skool that’s made up of suede and faux debossed snakeskin leather on the quarters, which is all contrasted by a black sole unit.

Rounding out the Skate Old Skool is an array of doodles by Geering on the heel, as well as a checkerboard tab on the quarter. For something even more wearable, there’s the Skate Era. Served in “Marshmallow” suede and leather (using the same debossed effect), we find a black midsole and finishing touches such as a checkerboard tab and brushed gold eyelets.

Rounding out the collaborative collection is a range of garments that suit the sneakers for a full Geering-approved look. With this in mind, there’s a tour tank top, plaid pants, Sturdy Stretch chinos, a black cotton canvas workwear jacket, a hat, and a tote bag, all sporting unique Geering-penned doodles and details.

Take a look at the Breana Geering x Vans Skate capsule collection in the lookbook above, and shop the entire range in-store or on Vans’ website now.
