The #menswear movement takes a West Coast vacation with the Vans CA “Primera” Pack. The Old Skool, Madero and Chukka Boot silos take well to leather, herringbone and suede composition, offering a mature take on the skate rooted styles. Dress blue and soft sepia hues highlight each upper, set atop clean white soles. Visit shopnicekicks.com to pick up the Madero and Chukka Boot for this collection, and visit Vans to pick up the Old Skool.
On March 16th, 1966, at street 704E Broadway, in Anaheim, California, Paul Van Doren and three partners opened up their first ever store and the Vans dream was born. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactures shoes and sells them directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchase shoes which are made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoes, which is now known as the Authentic were born.
Ever since Vans has continued to forge innovative collaborations through the Vault by BVans line with Vans sneaker combinations with design giant Marc Jacobs and OC up-and-comers Trovata flying off the shelves.

The casually-inclined Vans CA Chukka Boot 69 keeps it calm and collected on the “Primera” Sepia rendering. Suited for social gatherings, the streamlined skate sneaker sports an all-grey, herringbone-patterned upper, backed by a brown heel tab. Hitting up the eyelets and the laces looped through them, white takes its place on the mid-top kick, also showing up on the vulcanized midsole. Have a gander at the “Primera” Sepia Chukka Boot in the detailed shots below and head over to Shop Nice Kicks to score a pair for $75.
Muted tones are the vehicle for this Vans OG Sk8-Hi LX, as the silhouette is stamped with the “Sk8 Monkey” on the aptly named kick. Bringing suede and canvas to the table, the former is seen in a deep blue against an off-white upper, as the midsole takes on the same color. Leather is also entered into the equation and orange is seen on the Vans side stripe branding. Pick up this Sk8-Hi now at Shop Nice Kicks, where it’s available for $70.
The new Supreme x Playboy x Vans Collection sees all-over print takes on the Sk8-Hi and Authentic silos. Black, burgundy, green and white installments of both models rely on canvas construction and leather lining, allowing co-branded logos to stamp the uppers.

Vans reaches into the vault to bring back four different collaborations from the past, which will be exclusively available at their South By Southwest showcase. Music has always been one of the brand’s main focuses, with the Vans Warped Tour currently America’s longest-running music tour and a rich history of music-inspired releases. Four of their most iconic band models are set to make a return, only the second collection to ever make a retro run. The first pair in the quartet is the Circle Jerks Vans Old Skool, originally released in 2007 with all-over canvas and Group Sex artwork, inspired by the band’s 1980 debut album. Next in line is the Motörhead II Vans Rowley Classic, a blacked out rendition from 2006. Third is the Bad Brains Vans Sk8-Hi from 2009, which features a black and yellow lightning bolt design. Finishing the collection is the Rise Against Classic Slip-On, a 2010 release that highlights the band’s Appeal to Reason album.
