From the ground up

Established in 1966, just a year before the “Summer of Love” shaped the popular notion of the Love and Peace generation, California footwear mainstay Vans celebrate its counterculture roots with its latest release made in collaboration with streetwear specialists XLarge. The classic Vans Authentic comes in a unique mix of the brand’s ever-popular checkerboard design and a trippy hippie tie-dye colorway, making for some laid-back summer kicks guaranteed to turn heads.

They will be available via XLarge’s online store beginning July 6.
