In the heart of fall season, our BNY Sole Series is back with an exclusive Vans release. Our buying team is always searching for the next unique product, one that allows our team to get creative by putting their hand in the design, and they’ve found that with Vans. After previously collaborating to incorporate a basket-weave design and a spin on the classic checkerboard print, this time we’ve partnered to revive a vintage print that brings us back to childhood with green and blue dinosaurs.
“This particular collaboration is based off a vintage Vans sneaker with the Vanosaur print that we found at a vintage store in Europe. The original was printed canvas, and we updated that to an embroidered canvas,” says our Senior Buyer in Men’s Footwear, Chris Pepe. The print is rare and was first used in the 1980s on slip-on, Authentic, and Sk8-Hi sneakers. Now it’s also featured on the Old Skool silhouette, and the print is exclusive to Barneys.
Careful embroidery breathes new life into this rendition of a classic. Available in black, white, and off-white in all of the above styles for men and with slip-ons exclusive to kids, these need to be in your rotation.
