Vans, the original action sports brand and advocate for creative expression, have joined forces with British fashion house Vivienne Westwood to create a footwear capsule collection that champions fearless individualism and liberation.  The Vans x Vivienne Westwood Anglomania collection will launch in stores and online September 20.

The exclusive collection reinterprets iconic Westwood archive prints, graphics and design notes of the house for six of Vans Classic silhouettes; As a nod to each brand’s birthplace, the Sk8-Hi features embossed markings of a handwritten letter sent from Southern California to Vivienne Westwood’s flagship boutique at 44 Conduit St., London. The Sk8-Hi is outfitted with a natural vegetable dye tan leather, printed postage stamp listing the collaboration launch date and a leather-bound outsole. 

The Sk8-Hi Platform compliments the collection and is inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s Pirate boot - first presented in 1981 as part of the legendary Piratecollection. The Sk8-Hi Platform adopts key design notes from the iconic Vivienne Westwood Pirate boot - including the tan vegetable dye buckled strap across the high-top form.

Uniting the history of both brands, the Checkerboard Slip-On features Vans’ Checkerboard pattern layered with the Vivienne Westwood DESTROY graphic – brand signatures that both debuted in 1977. Westwood upholds the intent of the ever-changing Checkerboard by subverting the design to include larger scale checks applied diagonally on the vamp. 

Selected from Vans ‘90s archives, the collection reintroduces Style #53. The loafer style slip-on features black suede uppers, black lugged outsole and is finished with a Vivienne Westwood multi-colored metal orb.

Rounding out the Vans x Vivienne Westwood Anglomania collection are the Old Skool and Authentic styles which showcase the Vivienne Westwood Orb and Lightning Bolt print from the collection of house prints. The Old Skool is outfitted in oxblood suede and canvas with contrasting mustard stitching and gum sole. Vans’ original deck shoe, the Authentic, is presented in a new vivid sky-blue colorway made exclusively for this collaboration. Each of these styles are finished with a “VW” monogram.

The Vans x Vivienne Westwood Anglomania capsule collection will be available to shop at select Vans and Vivienne Westwood retail locations beginning September 20. 


New Jake Kuzyk Collection highlights Vans’ roots with throwback colorway and minimal pieces designed through the global team rider’s ultra-curated perspective. 

Ushering in the 2019/2020 season, veteran pro Jake Kuzyk and Vans introduce an updated version of the Hi-Standard OG - the brand’s best-selling snowboard boot of all time – and a new collection designed through Jake’s meticulous lens.

Building on Vans’ legacy of classic looks and performance, and Jake’s heavily skate-influenced style, the Hi-Standard OG Jake Kuzyk boot was inspired by an original Vans colorway that Jake identified while digging through the brand’s archives. The boot comes equipped with the all-new V1 UltraCush liner for improved comfort and warmth. The innovative V1 POPCUSH features a 3D-molded, anatomical shape footbed, delivering custom-tuned energy return for the highest levels of impact cushioning. The V1 Waffle Lug outsole provides the utmost board-feel with unrestricted mobility.
Complementing the boot isa minimalistic, street-influenced collectiondesigned by Jake himself. The signature Kuzyk Shell is built with a water-resistant DWR coating and welt pockets. 
Jake’s collection also includes a Standard Snow boot, anOld Skool Style 36 shoe and a VANS by Smartwool PhD snow sock with Indestructawool™ technologythat promises comfort whether you’re hiking handrails in the city, hitting powder kickers in the backcountry or in route from the couch to the kitchen.
As a global team rider, Jake is a key part of the Vans Snow DNA. His creative eye for spots - and deep bag of tricks to bring them to life - earned the Canadian snowboarder the coveted closing part for Vans’ first-ever full-length snowboard film,LANDLINE.,a momentous feat of insane riding and innovative filming that captivated the industry. More recently, he followed that up with his part in Vans’ sophomore release,Together Forever, filmed by Tanner Pendleton.

At just 29 years old, Jake has cemented his place among snowboarding’s ranks, with many more years of ripping yet to come. His latest take on Vans’ coveted boot and accompanying apparel collection illustrates Jake’s influence and style, and Vans’ penchant for progression. 

The Hi-Standard OG Jake Kuzyk Boot is now available at retail stores.

This fall, Vans Pro Skate reintroduces a new colorway installment to Elijah Berle’s first signature shoe, the Berle Pro. Utilizing  WaffleControl outsole technology, Vans’ breakthrough parametric cupsole, the Berle Pro provides state-of-the-art board control and responsiveness. The dark, crocodile-pattern colorway harkens back to another groundbreaking skate innovation from Vans: the world’s first-ever signature skate shoe, the Caballero.

As a Santa Monica native, Elijah is no stranger to swiftly adapting from the street to the parks and everything in between, helping to create a signature shoe that can keep up with his all-terrain lifestyle. Drawing inspiration from Vans’ first signature shoe with the legendary Steve Caballero in 1988, the black-and-pewter crocodile colorway pays homage to the past and integrates an updated design for today's generation of skateboarders. Inside and out, the Berle Pro is a Vans Pro Skate necessity designed by a skater, for skaters.

Elijah has reimagined the classic Old Skool silhouette to deliver upgraded support with Vans’ WaffleControl technology. The innovative outsole decreases the number of individual parts separating the foot from the board, resulting in next-level control and responsiveness that Vans Pro Skate is known for. Equipped with LuxLiner interior, which integrates the tongue and internal lining, the Berle Pro delivers a more comfortable and breathable fit. Black suede uppers reinforce durability to ensure a long-lasting shoe that withstands the daily grind of skateboarding.

A Vans global team rider since 2012, Elijah has maintained an illustrious skate career from his Tampa AM title in 2010 to his many notable skate parts, cover shots and three-time Thrasher Magazine “King of the Road” winnings. His upward trajectory shows no signs of stopping; he’s become one of the most influential and respected skateboarders in a seemingly limited amount of time. Now a member of the lethal Fucking Awesome roster, Elijah continues to push the limit while staying true to skating’s deep roots and dynamic spirit.

The Berle Pro in the black and pewter croc colorway is available stores now.
