GALLERY DEPT. is no stranger to the world of footwear collaborations as it has previously teamed up with French luxury fashion house Lanvin in the past, and now it’s slated to toss itself back into the collaborative ring for a team-up with Vans. Revealed by Josué Thomas — the artist and designer that helms GALLERY DEPT — the “Good Luck” Vans Old Skools are outfitted with distressed and text-heavy details.

All-over print lands across the side panels. Inspiration behind the collaboration has yet to be unearthed, but the various phrases that can be spotted include that of “Fine Drinks,” “Computer Crimes,” “Earth Crisis” and “Panic” eliciting feelings of chaos. The thick laces are backdropped in yellow and decorated with the phrase “Good Luck” in a repeating fashion. Toe boxes and heel overlays arrive with the standard black suede, and the jazz stripes have been modified with a fuzzy red fabric. Down below, the midsoles appear as if they’ve been scuffed up over time, and they come with upside-down GALLERY DEPT. branding that starts from the forefoot and wraps around the heels.

No release info has been announced yet, but you can likely expect these to drop sometime during the Spring/Summer 2023 season.

Elsewhere in sneakers, Awake NY and Vans recently rolled out an Old Skool collaboration.
