Editor’s Notes: After rumors of a Virgil Abloh collaboration fell flat, Vans excites fans after adding a new alternative to their popular slip ons. the Old Skool DX Zip. In the most recent iteration of the classic Old Skool silhouette, a zipper has been added to replace the laces all together.
Obviously designed to satisfy the lazy wearer, the zipper silhouette delivers best of both worlds by delivering the ease of a slip-on but the build of the original. Their signature slogan “OFF THE WALL” is also printed on the zipper.
