The most notorious skateboard apparel company in Vans has indirectly found themselves in the midst of streetwear culture over the past decade. The Vans Old Skool, Sk8-Hi, and Slip-On have become commonly seen silhouettes in throughout the culture and now, the brand has produced a collection of sneakers possibly inspired by one of the hottest streetwear companies in the culture today in Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE label. Without further ado, check out the Vans ‘Inside Out’ Pack in the images provided below.
The Vans Inside Out’ Pack features two different silhouettes including the Vans Sk8-Hi and the Vans Slip-On. Both sneakers take on deconstructed aesthetics with misplaced sneaker features.
The Vans Sk8-Hi ‘Inside Out’ features a hairy suede and textile canvas base complete with a lateral side quarter panel zipper, exaggerated embroidery, an extended heel counter that stretches past the silhouette’s midsole, a misplaced heel logo tag that could be found on the lateral side of the sneaker’s midsole, and OFF-WHITE’s patented “Everything In Quotes” detailing hits the sneaker’s shoelaces to close out the kicks.
The Vans Slip-On ‘Inside Out’ is a fusion of the Vans Old Skool silhouette and the obvious Slip-On sneaker. The kicks take on a more simplistic aesthetic and feature a suede base and detailed toe box, heel counter, and quarter paneling as well as an expendable lacing system. A la the Sk8-Hi rendering of the kicks, the Slip-On ‘Inside Out’ also features a misplaced heel logo to close out the sneaker.
The Vans ‘Inside Out’ Pack comes in simplistic color schemes like ‘Black/White’ and ‘Marshmallow/White’. Other colorways include checkered ‘Navy’ options and pastel color schemes for the ladies. The Vans ‘Inside Out’ Pack is currently available at select Vans retailers today.
