Editor’s Notes: Following its second collaboration, Vans and ALYX now introduces its FW17 collection, featuring the OG Style 138 LX, Authentic Convertible 43 LX and OG Style 29 LX — all of which have not been released for over two decades.

ALYX’s creative director Matthew Williams shared, “For this release we focused on the history of Vans and referenced past silhouettes that have since been retired. It was an incredible experience to go through the archives and reintroduce these styles with our own ALYX details.”

Each style has been updated with ALYX details including ALYX’s signature lighter caps, logo-tipped shoelaces, as well unique material and color combinations.

Additional retailers worldwide will have the collection available starting this Saturday, July 29.

Also, Vans teams up with BEAUTY & YOUTH for pink takes on the Old Skool & Sk8-Hi.
