Vans’ classic archive sneakers are ripe for special collaborations and releases to tell new stories on the beloved silhouettes. This week, the honor goes to Toronto’s Better™ Gift Shop, which applies its signature blue tone to the Vans Style 36 and Half-cab.

Better™ Gift Shop and Vault by Vans have linked up for their debut collaboration this month, delivering the Better™ version of the quintessential blue suede shoes. Based in Toronto, Canada Better was founded by Avi Gold and Kevin Li, with the intention of quite literally making a better gift shop, producing otherwise unnoteworthy items, but with a flare of excitement and passionate design. That idea has evolved over the years as the two continue to push their boundaries and create new stories and products, but one thing has stayed the same: the Better™ signature shade of blue, which now comes in the form of Vans shoes in an official collaboration with Vault by Vans. Launching in two styles, the Style 36 and the Half-Cab. the Better™ Blue pack pits both pairs in smooth blue suede and soft marshmallow white accents, finally delivering on the goal to do classic blue suede shoes the Better™ way.


The upcoming collaboration between Toronto’s Better™ Gift Shop and Vault by Vans has been scheduled to drop next week, on November 28th, 2020. Available in your choice of either the Half-Cab or the classic Style 36, both pairs will be available exclusively from Better™ stores and online, with prices set at $123 for the Style 36 and $138 for the Half-Cab. Check out the official images below for a better look at the two-pack of Vault Vans, and stay tuned to JustFreshKics for more news regarding the California skate brand.
