Not only is A$AP Rocky a man with nearly unlimited access to kicks, he now has his own signature sneaker with Under Armour. While regular folks window shop for the latest sneakers from Dior or OFF-WHITE x Jordan, Rocky receives them weeks, if not months, ahead of their release. The fashion killa’s sneaker closet must truly be a sight to behold.
But despite having all the choices (Raf Simons, Rick Owens…) in the world, Rocky has stayed rocking Vans (Old Skools to be more specific). Maybe his good friend Tyler, The Creator, a former Vans collaborator, has something to do with it. Old Skools were even Rocky’s shoe of choice for this A$AP Mob photo shoot.
Below, we trawled some of the biggest A$AP Rocky fan accounts on Instagram, to put together a quick style report, showing some of Pretty Flacko’s best looks all while rocking the classic California skate brand and proving the silhouette goes with just about anything.
Never not working
Rocky nails the classic look here with a vintage Michael Jordan T-shirt, black jeans, and a pair of “Flames” Vans Old Skools. The A$AP Mob frontman is clearly bringing the energy and doing his fiery footwear choice justice.
Warped Tour Chic
Channelling a punk aesthetic, Rocky wears a striped T-shirt and cropped trousers, highlighting his fashionably unlaced Vans Old Skools.
Rocky is seen donning the black Old Skools once again, which seem to be his go-to sneaker of late. Pretty Flacko also dons a Hermès blanket while performing on stage.
Rocky nailed the high-low look with classic black Old Skools and a luxe AWGE x JW Anderson fur jacket. He matched the low-top sneakers with some Prada suit pants, something we’re quite big fans of.
Oversized hoodie? Check. Billowing pants? Check. Vans Old Skool? Check. This is a signature Flacko ’fit but this time the rapper gives his kicks an eye-popping lace swap that not only add a new dimension to the classic creps but match his bandana to boot.
There’s no doubt Rocky is a fan of billowing trousers paired with Vans, a combination which he returns to here, also rocking a Balenciaga sweater.
Who says you can’t wear your sub $100 Vans with $1,000+ Gucci embroidered denim jacket? Never one to miss a trend, Rocky was mixing and matching high-end brands with steetwear staples like the Old Skool back in 2016 when Gucci was on top of the world.
Vans is What I’m Reppin
Pictured next to French Montana, Rocky stays light on his feet in the black Vans Old Skool.
Switching up his laces for yellow set, Rocky poses in the streets wearing (you guessed it) the Vans Old Skools, and a pair of side-striped trousers.
Pass the Swisher
Leisurely smoking a blunt, Rocky once again rounds out his outfit with black Vans Old Skools, reminding us that is truly one of the most versatile sneakers of all time.
Rocky is seen chilling with A$AP 12vy wearing what appears to be a pair of the “Flame” Vans Old Skool, hidden underneath a pair of baggy trousers that look like the AWGE x Needles collab.
