It was only last fall that Bape and Vans came together for their first-ever collaboration, but the two entities will link back up in 2022 for more sneakers.

After dropping co-branded renditions of the Sk8-Hi and Authentic in November, the Japanese-based streetwear label and the pioneering skate company have another project on tap that doesn’t stray too far from either brand’s core DNA. The Sk8-Hi will once again be featured and the collection will introduce a Bape x Vans Old Skool

Based on a teaser shared by Bape Japan on Instagram, we can see that the second installment on the collab will include at least two different shoes: a multicolor Sk8-Hi and a more traditional green camo Old Skool. The Sk8-Hi mixes things up with different colors of Bape’s camo on each side panel which is offset by Vans’ signature checkerboard print on the lateral side of the left shoe.

As of now, a release date for this Bape x Vans collection has not been announced, but more details should be available soon.

UPDATE (02/16): Vans announces its second Bape collection will launch later this month on Feb. 26. Highlighted by the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi sneakers, the collaboration also includes two co-branded T-shirts. U.S. retail pricing has not yet been announced, but the shoes will be available from both and
