vans the other side of the pillow london

For our latest episode of From the Ground Up, we ventured across the pond to visit Australian footwear collector Henry Davies and his Vans mecca, The Other Side of the Pillow.

Located in London, Vans museum and shop The Other Side of the Pillow has been up and running for roughly eight years, with doors previously located in Hackney, before recently moving to a permanent home inside the Carnaby Street Vans store, Per Davies, it is virtually the closest thing to a Vans museum, with the largest selection of American-made vans in the world. During our visit we got to browse inside the store and hear Davies speak on his outpost, while showcasing some of the rarest Vans sneakers on the planet.

After watching the clip, follow here to learn more about The Other Side of the Pillow.

Check out the collection for yourself at Vans Carnaby Street.
