For me, there’s something quite nostalgic about a pair of Vans. I’m not sure whether it evokes memories of my care-free youth, my inane inability to ever quite master a kick flip, or me pairing them with a pair of indescribably skinny jeans throughout my early teens, the era in which I was rocking Vans were undeniably simpler times.

Twenty years later (and now into my thirties), thanks to New York label Adsum, I’m ready to relive my youth.

Teaming up with Vans’ premium line Vault by Vans, the two brands are introducing collaborative takes on the OG Era LX and OG Classic Slip-On LX in both “Stone/Natural” and “Dark Green” shades respectively.

The classic Era silhouette – which initially dropped in 1976 – featured a padded collar for increased stability around skateboarders’ ankles, before a slip-on iteration was introduced the following year.

Now almost fifty years later, the two silhouettes remain one of the most popular in Vans’ arsenal, having been the focal point of numerous collaborations over the years with likes of Supreme and Engineered Garments, to name a few.

For this collab – which is available online now – Adsum looked to its Poppy the office dog for inspiration, and went about creating two summer-ready styles ideal for early morning and evening dog walks around its home of Brooklyn.

This link-up comes off the back of Adsum’s recently-released “High Summer” collection for SS22, which saw the label Dia: Beacon from Grand Central Station, which is now considered an almost rite of passage trip for New York City-based creatives.
