About the Collaboration
VANS is a California based skate brand with origination in the late 1960s, known for their classic skate shoes. ALYX has collaborated with the brand for two seasons, Spring Summer 17 and Fall Winter 17. Designer and founder Matthew Williams is a California native and ALYX is often inspired by the skate culture of his youth. The SS17 Vans collaboration centered around iconic styles using the fabrication and details true to the nature of ALYX. The second season collaboration reintroduced three archived silhouettes which had not been released for over two decades and readapted them with a personality and identity true to ALYX.
Vans colors, and arrives pre-laced with a star. The OG 29 LX is a re-release of a chunky soled Van, most notably in a soft pink suede. The collection delves into the history of Vans and its archived styles, and re enlivens them with a personality and identity very true to ALYX.
