Vans Launched Third Anaheim Factory Collection
Just in time for spring/summer, Vans have just launched the third instalment of their Anaheim Factory collection, featuring two reintroduced silhouettes, the Slip-On 47 DX and Mid Skool 37 DX.
Vans’ Anaheim Factory Collection pays homage to the brand’s 50-year plus footwear history. For the third instalment of the Anaheim Factory Collection, Vans have re-issued heritage styles to the Classics footwear with each design including the original style number and is trademarked by a vintage-inspired colour palette.
With a prominent higher glossed foxing tape, each model in the Anaheim Collection mimics the early stages of the vulcanisation process that Vans is notorious for today. Finally, each footwear style has been revamped with upgraded Vans UltraCush sock liners to provide modernised comfort within a timeless Vans design.
First released in the 1980s, the Slip-On 47 was the second iteration of the Slip-On style to be introduced within the Vans footwear line. This low-profile silhouette was updated to include a Velcro strap and enhanced padding along the collar of each shoe.
New to the Anaheim Factory Collection, the Mid Skool 37 DX was originally created following the first advanced modifications in skateboarding footwear, which prompted more cushion and increased ankle protection. The trainers dons Vans’ signature Sidestripe with a branded heel counter and contrasting white tongue.
In addition, the Slip-On 98 and Authentic 44 have also made a return in an array of different vibrant colours for the collection. The Anaheim Factory Collection is available now over at the Vans Website as well as in stores. Prices start at £57 for the Slip-On 47.
In other Vans news, the skating stalwarts have teamed up with Scandinavian outerwear brand, Rains, for a collection of footwear influenced by the industrial landscape of Copenhagen for our favourite collaboration of the year so far.
