Editor’s Notes: Vans has teamed up with National Geographic for a new five-piece collaboration geared towards nature-loving sneakerheads. A followup to Nat Geo’s graphic tee release from March, the footwear collection consists of staple Vans silhouettes in the Authentic, Era, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi, and Slip-On.
Each sneaker is decorated with imagery dedicated to some form of nature, in addition to National Geographic magazine covers. Co-branding is also present on all five pairs.
