Vans has teamed up with National Geographic to take its artistic concept to a new level in an attempt to foster a new appreciation for wildlife and nature.
As quoted from Hypebeast, the popular shoe brand described the collection as an homage to the magazine’s tradition of seeking and revealing the stories of wonders of the planet.
The collection includes five of Vans’ most iconic silhouettes: the Slip On, which features Greenland’s Pine Island Glacier; the Era, which showcases the ocean; the Authentic, which is decorated with National Geographic’s signature yellow border; the Old Skool, which highlights the beauty of wildlife animals, including the Mexican grey wolf and the red-eyed tree frog; and the Sk8-Hi, which contains a large embroidered logo of the magazine.
