Vans has been accustomed to collaborations with prestigious names for many years and the latest to be added to the long list is RÆBURN, the creative and collaborative fashion studio of London-based designer Christopher Raeburn.
With this collection, the two partners celebrate responsible design, the core of RÆBURN’s work, combining it with the use of technical materials in a footwear and apparel capsule inspired by RÆBURN’s unique philosophy.
The collection includes Vans’ two classic Sk8-Hi and Old-Skool, each in two different colorways. Featuring a camouflage print and an ankle strap, the Vans x RÆBURN Sk8-Hi GTX VR3 comes in a streamlined version with functional enhancements such as rubber inserts and the addition of a GORE-TEX waterproof lining, keeping your feet dry in all conditions. It’s complemented by a VR3Cush outsole, made from at least 25% biobased foam partially derived from plants and an iconic VR3Waffle outsole made from a proprietary compound containing at least 25% natural rubber.
The Sk8-Hi GTX VR3 is also available in black with a contrasting bright orange logo. For fans of the iconic Old-Skool, the Vans x RÆBURN Old-Skool GTX VR3 comes in camouflage and all-black versions, with the same innovative materials and GORE-TEX coating as the Sk8-Hi.
On the apparel side, the collection includes a 100% recycled polyester fleece tracksuit. Available in camouflage or all-black, the set features many practical details, such as multiple zippered pockets, a fitted hood, and an elastic waistband. Also part of the collab are a long-sleeved tee, a short-sleeved cotton jersey tee with the collaboration’s logos, two knitted caps, a camouflage printed choker and a functional 100% nylon backpack on wheels.
