Founded by professional surfers Dane Reynolds and Craig Anderson, and pro skaters Austyn Gillette and Dylan Rieder, Former is an independently owned and operated brand focusing on good, quality design. Vans Surf and Former have partnered yet again to reinvent thes “Off The Wall” standard. The upcoming collection shares both brands interests as the lineup features the Vans Destruct Mid MTE-1, Vans Mid Slip MTE-1, and the all-new Vans Surf Boot Hi Split Toe 3MM.

Both sneaker options are made with durable leather and suede in a green, black, and cream color palette. The Vans Destruct Mid MTE-1 and Vans Mid Slip MTE-1 come equipped with moisture management, thermoregulation, and traction. The weatherproof technology will carry you through rain or shine. Both silhouettes are complete with embossed details and patches designed by the Former team.

The Vans Surf Boot Hi Split Toe 3MM dives straight in with premium swell-approved features. The boot has a micro-waffle grip for optimal performance and split toe construction for increased dexterity. The dual rubber-dipped upper remains flexible while offering warmth. The boot has a gusseted top that features Former graphics just above the branded pull tab.

The Former x Vans LTD Collection releases on September 8, 2022. To purchase, visit and select retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
