This year has seen two OFF-WHITE collaborations with Converse, one back in May and, more recently, another in September. But with a teaser having previously done the rounds, an official OFF-WHITE x Vans sneaker has yet to receive a physical release.
While a model was spotted in an OFF-WHITE runway show back in 2017, it never actually went into production. In fact, Virgil even shut down rumors of a Vans collab in July, after Vans dropped a sneaker pack which included some sneakers many claimed were OFF-WHITE-inspired.
On the other side of the coin, however, OFF-WHITE since released some extremely Vans-like sneakers. First available to shop in May, the sneakers proved difficult to find thereafter, but have since returned to stock at select retailers such as Antonioli.
Coming in three different colorways and featuring a construction very similar to Vans’ Old Skool model, the shoes come with signature OFF-WHITE orange zip-tie and the arrow patches we’ve come to instantly associate with Virgil’s brand, as well as a striped rubber sole.
Right now, these kicks are the closest thing you’ll get to a Vans collab, so take advantage via the links below.
