Silk Sonic’s Anderson .Paak brings groovy vibes to Vans with his upcoming “Vanderson” Collection. This is the duo’s third collaboration together and includes his signature footwear style, the Vans EPaak Sport, as well as the Vans Authentic and Vans Old Skool 36.
As Vans’ first official global music ambassador, it’s only right that Anderson .Paak have his own signature shoe, the Vans EPaak Sport. For this collection, the EPaak Sport has a muted paisley print upper with a smooth, velvety finish. The Vans Authentic also sports paisley print but opts for a bright Summertime colorway instead. The Vans Old Skool 36 has an olive toned corduroy upper with a portrait of Anderson on the tongue. This portrait is also seen in the accompanying campaign which was directed by Anderson and features actress Marsai Martin alongside Anderson’s son, sister, nieces, and nephew.
The “Vanderson” Collection will also include apparel such as tees, trousers, and jackets, all dressed in shades of sandy tie-dye and paisley. Both the apparel and footwear options were inspired by Anderson’s heritage and community.
The Vans x Anderson .Paak “Vanderson” Collection will be available worldwide beginning on June 24, 2022. To purchase, visit Vans.com and select retailers. Additionally, Anderson .Paak will be celebrating the launch with a performance at the House of Vans in London on June 27, 2022. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
