Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, continues its long-standing relationship with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang in its latest collection of footwear, apparel and accessories this October. Using original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz, the collection pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials.

Charles M. Schulz illustrations take new shape across the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool styles using the entire silhouette as a canvas. Original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy take over the monochromatic silhouettes and are outfitted with leather Sidestripes. Kicking it back to the comic strip days is an Authentic that has been decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Peanuts fans can get their dancing shoes on in an Authentic or Old Skool model that depicts the whole Peanuts Gang during the memorable dance party scene from the animated television special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and his family members across the canvas panels of the Half Cab. Peek closely and you may see Snoopy’s brother, Spike, on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. Vans’ very own Checkerboard Slip-On has been reimagined this season to include the many playful expressions of Snoopy that can be found within print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue gets a premium upgrade with leather materialization and has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include the subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock can be seen on the tongue label. A very special Classic Slip-On was created to celebrate the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.

Signature Vans x Peanuts apparel and accessories will be available in a range of prints that match the footwear assortment, including the monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print. Tiny tykes get their very own Classic Slip-On that features Snoopy with a plush tail detail at the heel.

The latest Vans x Peanuts collection of footwear, apparel and accessories will be available on October 6th!

With winter just around the corner, Vans partners with global snow team rider Darrell Mathes and co-founder of HOWL, for an exclusive HOWL collaboration celebrating Vans snow boots and apparel. Available now, The new Vans and HOWL capsule features elevated renditions of the Hi-Standard snowboard boot and Jonesport MTE jacket. Each piece blends HOWL’s sophisticated aesthetic with Vans’ functional snow boot and all-weather MTE technology.

HOWL co-founder Darrell Mathes states, “This project was really fun for HOWL since both brands support many of the same athletes, resulting in a product capsule that truly reflects who we are as snowboarders.”

With a shared team roster of professional snowboarders from all over the world, Vans and HOWL family members Darrell Mathes, Jake Kuzyk, Dan Liedahl, and more, have unanimously adopted the Vans Hi-Standard boot as a team favorite, thus making it the perfect style choice for this project. The Vans Hi-Standard is a classic lace-up boot formulated with heat-moldable Flex Liners, V2 UltraCush footbeds and Reverse Waffle outsoles for an uncompromised, reliable fit. A perfect boot for park and street inspired riding with all-mountain and cross-terrain capabilities. In addition to the Hi-Standard boot, the Vans and HOWL capsule offers a Jonesport MTE all-weather jacket that is constructed with DuPont Sorona sustainable fill, printed camouflage flannel lining and 1K DWR coating to keep you warm and dry, whether you’re out in the mountains or shredding on the streets.

Co-founders Darrell Mathes and Nima Jalali started HOWL in 2012 with a mission to provide timeless, high-quality and innovative product that fit the needs and wants of snowboarders around the globe. Established by a collective of creative snowboarders, HOWL’s team riders are involved in every aspect of the brand to deliver true, “snow-forward” product. HOWL was created by snowboarders, for snowboarders every step of the way.

This season, Vans brings forth a new All Weather MTE footwear and apparel offering for men and women, built to withstand harsh weather conditions season after season. The All Weather MTE collection features weather-resistant construction in Vans’ classic silhouettes, while staying true to the brand’s timeless aesthetic.

Beginning August 1, Vans unveils new iterations of All Weather MTE footwear classics, with enhanced features on iconic silhouettes including the Sk8-Hi MTE, Sk8-Hi Del Pato MTE, Old Skool MTE, Prairie Chukka MTE and Chauffette MTE. All styles in the collection feature premium weather-resistant upper materials, warm linings and a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole to help keep feet warm and dry. A Vans constructed lug outsole takes advantage of over 20 years of snow boot history, infusing timeless style and modern technology into footwear that embraces the cold seasons.
 
In addition to the footwear, Vans presents hybrid outerwear styles featuring a wide offering of jackets coated with durable water repellant and insulated linings for warmth and dryness for the cold seasons. The men’s apparel assortment offers a selection of jackets including the Torrey MTE, Woodcrest MTE and the McCormick MTE. The Woodcrest MTE jacket is a quilted packable puffer with DuPont Sorona sustainable fill and is offered in a camouflage print. As an ode to the oxford coaches jacket, the Torrey MTE featured a quilted taffeta lining for added warmth. The McCormick MTE is a heavyweight parka, adapted for the elements featuring zippered chest pockets and lower body snap pockets for a classic aesthetic and convenient function.
 
For the women’s All Weather MTE apparel line, Vans introduces the Vancouver II Jacket MTE and Doppler Puffer Jacket. The Doppler Puffer Jacket MTE is a long line puffer jacket with a versatile, removable hood. The Vancouver II Jacket MTE is a reversible, bomber jacket featuring an allover print one side and a classic black shell with a patch on the other.

Crockett Pro 2 Upholds Industry’s First Vulcanized Cupsole

An All-Terrain Boot Backed by Trailblazing Pro Snowboarder Pat Moore

In preparation for the winter season, Vans gears up with the most customizable snowboarding boots on the planet, the Infuse. Endorsed by Vans global snow team rider Pat Moore, the Infuse is a high performance, multi-purpose boot built for snowboarders of every level, and every kind of terrain. As the most versatile boot in the Vans snowboard boot line, the Infuse readily serves Pat Moore’s ever-evolving, multi-faceted snowboarding style.

Pioneering the concept of an all-terrain snowboard boot, the Pat Moore-endorsed Infuse employs a myriad of sophisticated performance features to offer riders unlimited adaptability. Constructed with the Vans Flex Control System to allow riders to custom-tune the flex of their boot, the Infuse also utilizes the Vans Hybrid Plus Boa closure system with a custom slide-guide for the best closure accuracy and flex variability in a complete all-in-one system. This one-of-a-kind boot also offers heat-moldable liners with a removable X-cage for maximum heel hold, V3 UltraCush Lite footbeds, and new for this season, the Infuse boasts new Ultimate Waffle outsoles that provide more heel dampening, arch support and the response and weight reduction snowboarders dream of.
 
“No matter your riding style or ability, this boot can transform to how you ride,” Moore affirms. “The combination of the BOA, laces, power strap and bonus tongue stiffeners allows the Infuse to easily evolve throughout my snowboard season or even throughout the day, depending on terrain and snow conditions.”
 
With the Vans family since 2012, New Hampshire native Pat Moore is known as one of the best all-around snowboarders in the world. Emerging onto the street scene in the early 2000’s with his heavy park riding, Pat has fused his creative urban skills into powerful, big mountain and backcountry riding over the years to make him one of the best well-rounded riders of all time. With multiple standout video parts and contest podiums in all types of snowboard terrain, Pat Moore’s dynamic riding demands a versatile snowboard boot that can follow suit.

In addition to the Infuse boot, Vans is offering a Sk8-Hi MTE by Pat Moore, all available online and in-stores now. To learn more about Vans snow boot technology and find an authorized dealer near you, visit Vans.eu.

Launching on September 7, the collection combines Vans’ signature “Off The Wall” edge with KARL LAGERFELD’s sophisticated aesthetic.

Honoring Steve Caballero’s Legendary Skate Shoe Model

Continuing to showcase the deep assortment within Vans’ style icons, Vans draws inspiration from the past to release the Retro Sport pack. The Sk8-Hi Reissue, Sk8-Hi Slim and Old Skool take on a vintage vibe characterized by a 1970’s, prismatic color scheme on rich suede.  

Retroactive wear has remained a source of inspiration in the Vans Classics collection and Vans designers emphasize its influence for the coming season. The capsule is constructed with an opulent suede material in colors including Gunmetal, Glazed Ginger, Tibetan Red, Blossom and Sea Spray Green. Combined with contrast white stitching, white leather Sidestripe, canvas white tongue, cotton laces and a marshmallow outsole, the Vans Retro Sport pack nods towards Vans’ early design foundation.  

Vans continues to reinvent the Classics line through product innovation, new materializations and style adaptations to evolve the Classic Icons that we know today, proving that Vans Classics are not just one thing.

Vans looks to its past to bring forth two Checkerboard patterns from the Vans archives as an update to the Anaheim Factory Pack. First introduced last season, the Anaheim Factory Pack takes elements from the original make and model of Vans Classic Icons and reinvents them with the Vans’ innovative UltraCushÔ foam technology for premium comfort.

The Authentic 44 DX and Style 36 DX were developed to match the original construction of the Classics that were produced in the first Vans factory in Anaheim, California. Cotton laces, heavy 10 oz. canvas, style numbers, original drill lining found on the heel of each shoe and a higher glossed foxing tape that captures the sheen that came from the original vulcanization process, are all design elements that were seen over 51 years ago. As a nod to the retro styling, Vans designers dressed the Authentic 44 DX and Style 36 DX with Checkerboard in OG black and mauve colorways. Along with the timeless design, each model has been upgraded with an UltraCushÔ sockliner delivering modernized comfort.

The Anaheim Factory Pack pays homage to Vans’ humble beginnings that led to five decades of pinnacle design. To catch the limited run of Classics, visit selected Vans stores and vans.eu now.

Vans embarks on a journey to adventure with the European release of the UltraRange campaign on Tuesday, August 1. Marking a major milestone in Vans’ footwear design history, the UltraRange leads the path forward for innovation, emphasizing the brand’s expanded vision to create a versatile footwear model that provides advanced comfort, lightweight traction, and superior mobility combined with Vans’ timeless style.

Living out of a suitcase on multiple expeditions a year, Vans pro surfer Pat Gudauskas finds endless inspiration traveling around the world in search of the perfect surf. With his collaborative insight, Vans ventured to create a new silhouette that offered maximum versatility across diverse landscapes and lifestyles. “What if we created something that brings the look of Vans together with the functionality needed for different terrains—city streets, boardwalks, mountain paths,” Pat expressed. “...Bring the element of comfortable, hearty and functional all in one shoe—it would have comfort and utility, but look like Vans no matter where you are.”
“Design and functional product feedback from our athletes has been critical to the evolution of Vans product development ever since Tony Alva asked for a shoe with additional padding to help him progress his skateboarding technique,” said Dave Solomon, Vans VP of Global Product, Footwear. “As Vans continues to grow, it’s essential that we continue to engage with the people that live our brand ethos and extend our products through innovative technology while maintaining Vans’ classic design to enable their daily pursuits.”

With a modern shape and new co-molded midsole, the UltraRange unveils Vans’ next generation of footwear technology, while paying homage to its rich history with the iconic Vans Sidestripe. The slim-profile, low-top design blends premium materials, breathable textiles, and a responsive sock-fit construction, empowering your adventure from the ground up.

UltraRange Features Vans’ first-ever co-molded midsole merging UltraCush™ Lite foam cushioning with rubber inspired by Vans’ original waffle outsole for elevated comfort and versatility
LuxLiner™ internal sock-fit construction for seamless comfort
Vans’ reverse waffle lug offering superior grip and traction
Breathable, lightweight mesh upper for increased airflow and enhanced flex
Rapidweld stitchless construction for increased flexibility in high-abrasion areas while reducing pressure points on the foot The Vans UltraRange embraces a life of exploration, enabling creative pursuits from all corners of the globe to inspire you to get there—new cities, new spots, new unknowns.

Vans UltraRange will be available across all Vans stores and Vans.eu from August 1st.

Drawing off the success of the original Boom Boom Jacket offered in Fall 2016, Vans Women’s Apparel and Accessories expands the military-style bomber offering to include a full-fledged apparel collection that will include new outerwear silhouettes along with accessories that match back to a selection of women’s Classic footwear styles. The Boom Boom Collection was designed to inspire and celebrate the camaraderie among women. The pieces from this collection can be worn as a symbol that represents the attitude and essence of female strength, beauty and creative self-expression through style.

Partnering with Los Angeles-based photographer Adri Law, Vans captured the fleeting sense of adventure as five women traveled up the California coast to San Luis Obispo.
The 18-piece collection highlights designs that draw inspiration from the original Boom Boom Jacket combined with workwear elements. The collection kicks off with the Boom Boom III Jacket which showcases the traditional nylon bomber styling with zip front closure, snap pocket detailing, finished with a contrast marigold lining. New for this season, Vans introduces the Boom Boom Quilted Coat, a long-line body structure with all-over quilted detailing and a 4-ounce fill for increased warmth. Each Boom Boom Jacket is embellished with a “Vans Since 1966” patch. To compliment the outerwear assortment, the Boom Boom BF tees are available in black and port royal, with front and back graphic placements.

Showcasing the same nylon materialization and marigold liner, Women’s Classic footwear get the complimentary treatment, comprising three Sk8-Hi Slim styles and two Old Skools with nylon bomber material along the quarter-panel and a unifying marigold footbed liner. The Style 23 V completes the footwear assortment with nylon panels and a suede toe-cap with Velcro closures. The collection is rounded out with three nylon Boom Boom Backpacks and two signature style Boom Boom hats along with a premium knit beanie.

The Vans Boom Boom collection is available across Europe from August 1st, 2017.
