The ongoing partnership between the two American brands have gained the likes of sneakerheads all over – including us – with their various renditions of a classic pair of Vans.
Yes there was the tonal Easter pack that featured the sneakers in cool-toned muted hues and the QiPao pack that had beautiful Chinese embroidery all over but here, we rundown the latest three releases that we heart.
The Big Cat Pack, launched in November 2016 was all about faux leopard and tiger prints on a fuzzy upper adorned on a pair of OG Old Skools and Slip Ons – what’s not to love?
The same month also saw the release of the elements pack every minimalist would love. In a brown to nude colour pallete, the range compromises of the Sk8-Hi LX and the Old Skool LX.
Then came the sophomore edition which saw the Passion pack come through on February 2017. Instead of a statement sneaker, the second release saw the likes of rich, pastel hues. From fiery red to a feminine lilac and even neon yellow, the colours were stamped on Vans’ iconic silhouettes, the Old Skool LX and the Sk8-Hi LX. The highlight of this collection? The all white OG Style #23 LX made from premium leather which featured 3 straps – a reminiscent of every childhood sneaker.
And the latest, most “to-die-for” release is the sneaker brand’s first ever all-glitter shoe. From the laces to the soles and even it’s iconic stripes have been remaked into a sparkly sensation that are both Instagram-worthy and definitely party-ready. The new Glitter pack comes in three outstanding colourways – Anthracite with Black, Blue with Red and Bright Blush with True White redesigned on the Vans OG Old Skool LX.
All the sneakers are available on Opening Ceremony’s official website.
