Classic Vans prints like the checkerboard, the skull pirate and the aloha leaf feature prominently in the new collection, showing the brands heritage as it reaches this milestone. Similarly, the clashing patterns and contrasting colours of the shoes channels the DIY ethic that Vans is all about and that was embodied by the on-site customisation offered in that first shop half a century ago. As well as reworked versions of silhouettes like the Sk8-Hi 38 Reissue, Era 95 Reissue, and Slip-On 98 Reissue, there are also new tees, trucker hats and an updated Old Skool backpack.

You can see the rest of the collection below, and you can pick them up in store or from www.vans.co.uk this August.
