Five fresh takes on the popular Vans OG Old Skool and Sk8-Hi styles are the newest releases from our 2017 BNY Sole Series project. “These specific Vans styles have been trending in the footwear space and a lot of customers gravitate toward wearing classic silhouettes,” notes Senior Men’s Footwear Buyer Chris Pepe. Thus, the Barneys’ team wanted to collaborate with the iconic brand to simplify yet elevate the silhouettes in shades of soft grey, dark brown, and dark green.

Each high top and low top is made with high-quality nubuck and leather, taking the skater sneakers to the next level—especially since they are Exclusively Ours XO. The OG Old Skool and Sk8-Hi favorites are the epitome of California-cool, made with their time-tested rubber soles, a Vans logo patch, and a leather lining.

While these limited-edition Vans are available now, Pepe says there are many other exciting collaborations set to release later this year that you should keep an eye out for. “We have a great upcoming launch with adidas, reworking their classic Samba, and for Fall 2017, we’ll have new partnerships with Fila, Reebok, and Clarks,” he reveals. “I’m looking forward to having all of these styles in-store and online to keep offering updates on the shoes everyone loves.”
