As if the first Star Wars x Vans Collection wasn’t enough for you, we are now getting another dope release from the duo. This time, however, Vans is taking a walk on the dark side. The holiday collection introduces new designs that are inspired by villains from the original trilogy and extends though some of our favorite silhouettes to men’s apparel and accessories.
Kicking off the Star Wars x Vans “Dark Side” holiday collection is the Vans Era, which features an interesting design aesthetic that blends a Black and White camo print and images of Imperial Stormtroopers. The blended print had a limited run in the Vans Vault collection and now it’s back with a few adjustments, replacing the original skull and sword graphic by images of Darth Vader, Stormtrooper helmets and lightsabers.
The Vans Slip-On model is also highlighted in the collection, as it is seen working a sinister and stealthy, all-Black motif. The blacked out color scheme serves as a base to reveal a portrait of the Sith Lord himself in a subtle but unique way. Lastly, Vans turns to the trusted Vans Authentic for a display of good versus evil. The sneaker is decked out in images from life on ice plant Hoth.
Even the tots will be able to rock these kicks, but Vans throws in an extra treat. The kids and toddlers will receive an additional colorway that takes hold of the Vans Slip-On, to reveal a classic checkerboard design of Stormtrooper and Vader faces. The Star Wars x Vans “Dark Side” Holiday Collection is currently available at select Vans retailers, but hurry, because they might not be for long. via KicksonFire.com
