Vans’ list of collaborative partners is ever-expanding, and this week, they’ve added another. Teaming up with outdoor utility gear manufacturer VSSL, Vans is ready to launch a trio of classic silhouettes with outdoor-ready features.

The new partnership between Vans and VSSL introduces something entirely new for sneaker releases with the custom-made emergency kits launching alongside the footwear. Each one if tailored to the matching silhouette, whether its the more rugged, all-terrain “Camp Supplies” version accompanying the Sk8-Hi, or the “Skate” and “Surf” First Aid kits that pair with the Old Skool VLT LX or Era VLT LX, respectively. Each VSSL kit features the same base items, which include military-grade aluminum packaging that doubles up as a powerful flashlight, an oil-filled compass, and a selection of adventure-ready gear carefully curated to fit your choice of sport. Each of the footwear options, the Sk8-Hi MTE, Old Skool LX, and Era LX, come in a total of three bold colorways, giving everyone something to enjoy.


The new project from outdoor manufacturer VSSL and Vault by Vans released earlier this month on November 1st, 2019. The collection will be avaialble directly from Vans website, though no official price list has been revealed yet.
