What We’re Saying: Two favorites among skaters and streetwear enthusiasts alike — Palace and Vans — it's hard to believe it took this long for the duo to collaborate on a collection. Thankfully, that time has come, as the first-ever collaboration drops in the form of a playful footwear and apparel collection.

Palace uses the collab as an opportunity to introduce you to its Employee of the Month — every month — Jeremy the Duck. The London-based skate brand cheekily insists that Jeremy is the brains behind the Vans drop. Of course, Jeremy is featured on an all-over pattern across three colorways of the Skate Authentic.

Redesigned for modern skateboarding, the Skate Authentic arrives in salmon, black, and classic white, adorned with a multicolored graphic starring Jeremy the Duck. Below the canvas uppers you will find white midsoles marked with Palace's Tri-Ferg logo as well as Vans branding, while additional brand insignia appears at the heel, where Jeremy the Duck sits atop the Vans Off the Wall motif.

Accompanying the trio of Skate Authentics is a long-sleeve T-shirt, dubbed "Duck Out," which boasts a co-branded graphic featuring Jeremy the Duck. The top also arrives in salmon, black, and classic white, with additional graphics on the sleeves.

To celebrate the debut collaboration, Palace has produced a coinciding documentary starring Palace pros Rory Milanes and Danny Brady and London comedy duo Jonah and Stan. The film delves into the origins of the Palace x Vans partnership and also gives us a first real-life look at the myth, the legend, Jeremy the Duck.
