No doubt, we were expecting one more killer partnership before the year was out. In this latest team-up, the classic Vans Old Skool silhouette gets a makeover, with two new juxtaposing colorways and designs. The upper features suede detailing with opposing white, grey, and black tones available – making this new release simple yet striking in its look.
Wood Wood designer Brian SS Jensen remarked that this collaboration is “a tribute to adolescent behavior and attitude.” The neutral-toned upper quietly emphasizes the detailing on the midsole graphic, which reads “Now Forever” and “Forever Now”. This typeface feature has become popular for sneaker brands this year including the Nike x OFF WHITE “The Ten” series, and Vans’ prior collabs with Patta and Aries. We have a feeling this will become a heavy proponent of the brand in future drops.
For Wood Wood x Vans, however, the final result is a slick selection of winter-fresh kicks. This limited quantity drop can be purchased exclusively at W.W. stores and online from November 30. In the meantime, check out the gallery above for a quick preview.
If you haven’t seen it already, a potential Vans x OFF-WHITE collab is on the way.
