Brand: Discovery x Vans
Model: Sk8-Hi and Slip-On “Shark Week”
Key Features: Both silhouettes feature shark-themed graphics on their uppers, the Sk8-Hi opting for a great white shark breaching the water, while the Slip-On opts for a more fun cartoon-style graphic. The Sk8-Hi’s graphic also interacts with the Vans side stripe, making it seem like the shark has taken a big chunk out of it.
Release Date: Available now
Price: $65 (Slip-On), $75 (Sk8-Hi)
Editor’s Notes: Vans has just released a fun, charitable collection in collaboration with the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Two adult sneakers, five child and toddler footwear options, and a range of co-branded apparel make up the collection.
The crown jewel, though, is the Sk8-Hi, which features a great white shark taking a bite out of Vans’ iconic side stripe and, at the time of writing, is only available in small sizes online. The Slip-On is still available in a full size run, as are most other items.
Proceeds from the collection will go to Oceana, an organization that works to protect the world’s oceans and its wildlife. If you’re a fan of Shark Week, Vans, or saving the ocean, check out the collection via the button below.
