Lack of Updates???

30 07 2007

Yes, there have been a lack of updates due to the lack of news about Vans. I have been posting all the recent news / info / pics of the upcoming and already released Vans, but right now it seems to be dry.

Once new news pops up, I will definitely update you guys. So don’t stop checking the blog because you might miss you on something extremely good.

Underworld / Yesterday’s Future x Vans

26 07 2007

Yesterday’s Future & Underworld have collaborated with Vans to make a very simple and elegant Sk8 Hi. Underworld Skate Shop is a very popular Canadian skateboard shop and Yesterday’s Future is the title of the video that Underworld has made for the popular Canadian skaters.

The limited pair of Sk8 His that is releasing is limited to 240 pairs and is only sold at Underworld Skate Shop located in Canada. The shoes were produced to honor some of the best Canadian skateboarders that were featured in the Yesterday’s Future video, which comes free with purchasing the pair of shoes.

This pair of shoes is straight FIRE! Underworld skate shop used some of the best quality around. The shoe features premium leather around the whole shoe, with crocodile skin on the back heel. All you Canadian collectors, skaters, people in general get down to Underworld skate shop and cop your pairs!

Here are some pics of the shoes:

Marc Jacobs x Vans Part II

26 07 2007

I showed the Marc Jacobs Vans for Fall earlier, but there was no concrete info on how many pairs were out. We still don’t have concrete info on how many pairs are out but there are more pictures of what is coming out.

Marc Jacobs came with a little more of his personal style to this. The picture I found shows 2 pairs of Eras and 4 pairs of Slip Ons. The Eras come in a bright pink and a cream/white colorway. The Slip Ons come in a what looks to be a grey corduroy color, a neon yellow color, the white color with the drawing of an Authentic and a white upper with a full gum sole.

These shoes should be hitting Marc Jacobs stores very soon, as well as all the other places that carried Marc Jacobs Vans. Be on the the lookout for these upcoming pairs.

Vans Butcher Block Berlin Toy

25 07 2007

Just like I said before, Vans Butcher Block Berlin is the home of Vans newest flagship store. I showed you the shoes that they released in commemoration for the opening of their store. In addition to the pair of Slip Ons that they released, Vans Butcher Block Berlin has also released a vinyl figure.

This piece of vinyl is extremely nice. Vans worked with Coarsetoys in order to create this extremely limited figure. The figure stands 64 cm (a little taller than 2 ft) and has extreme detail. The figure’s name is Flake and will be available for pre-order at the Vans Butcher Block Berlin store for 210 Euros (around $290). Price is a little high but this figure looks to be worth every penny.

The thing that sets this vinyl piece off for me is that the figure is wearing a pair of Sk8 His, which look to be the colors of the Vans Butcher Block Berlin Slip Ons. If anyone in or around Berlin can hook a brother help, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll be more than willing to take care of you.

Here are some pics of one of the hottest figures I’ve seen in a while:

Vans x Supreme "Troops of Tomorrow" Chukka

25 07 2007

I showed you guys before the Supreme “Troops of Tomorrow” pack, which only consisted of a Sk8 Hi and 2 Chukkas (black/black & orange/black). The shoes are dedicated to the 1982 album by The Exploited, so these shoes are going to have a huge genre of purchasers. I have just seen another sample of a Chukka in black/white which should be dropping with the pack. The writing on the midsole of this pair is a lot different than the pictures that I showed before. There is still no info on when the release date is but keep checking back for more info.

Collete Simpsons Vans Installation

24 07 2007

The Simpsons Vans has released in the U.S. already and we have all witnessed the hype or in better words, attention that these shoes have created. Well, Collete is suppose to be releasing there pairs of the Simpsons Vans this week, so if you happen to be in or near Paris, make sure to stop by to cop your pair.

I know this entry isn’t totally dedicated to Vans but the Simpsons Vans has had a huge impact on the Vans world. As much as it is hard to fathom the amount the Simpsons Vans are selling and how limited these bad boys are, I have to give it up to all 12 artists, the Simpsons crew and the Vans crew for putting out such an intense line.

Here is something to think about though. If the information straight from Vans and all the stores said that only the 10 stores in the U.S. were getting them and they were limited to 100 pairs of each style, but now places overseas are getting them, what does this mean? Does this mean that there are more than 100 pairs per style? Does this mean that more stores might get them? Who knows, but check this sick display that shows off the shoes and customized Qees by various artists.
