Vans’ special projects are always a treat, and this Summer is no different. This week, Vans unveiled their next large scale project, which gives National Geographic Magazine the opportunity to decorate 5 classic silhouettes with some of their famous photography.

The upcoming project from National Geographic Magazine and Vans is a nature-loving-sneakerheads’ dream come true. Featuring the five all-time -great Vans sneakers, the Era, Authentic, Old Skool, Slip-On, and Sk8-Hi, each shoe takes on a unique photograph or art directly inspired by NatGeo. For example, the fan-favorite Slip-On depicts a printed image of Greenland’s Pine Island Glacier in then and now photographs, while the Old Skool depicts portraits of the Mexican Grey Wolf and the Red-Eyed Tree Frog, along with some basic facts about each animal.


The upcoming collection from Vans and National Geographic Magazine has been announced for release later this week, on June 1st, 2020. The collection, which includes the Vans Era, Authentic, Sk8-Hi, Slip-On, and Old Skool, will be available from both collaborative partners as well as select Vans retailers around the world. Prices for the collection range from $82 up to $104. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Vans release news.
