Vans’ premium footwear label, Vault by Vans, readies its limited edition Star Wars capsule for release this weekend with a launch on May the Fourth, the official Star Wars fan holiday. Vault by Vans pays homage to a movie phenomenon that has grown into a way of life for many and nurtured the kind of loyal, lasting following that few have. The Vault by Vans x Star Wars partnership offers the ideal platform to unify two time-honored histories on high-end materializations.
An OG Sk8-Hi LX and the OG Classic Slip-on LX use a vibrant Vans Miami print from the ’80s that incorporates the silhouette of AT-AT Walkers, the infamous four-legged transport and combat vehicle deployed by Imperial ground forces trekking across the planet Hoth.
The OG Sk8-Hi LX and OG Era LX blend Vans’ heritage pirate skull and bones print into a pattern featuring Darth Vader and Stormtrooper heads with crossing pirate swords and light sabers.
Working with the permission of skate legend Steve Caballero, his iconic logo becomes the scene of an epic battle of good against evil. A skateboard-riding, light saber brandishing Yoda uses the Force to fight the good fight on a turtledove-colored OG Half
