When you think of classic and iconic sneakers, Vans has silhouettes that make the shortlist. And with the launch of their “Classic Since Forever” campaign which highlights a few of the classic sneakers in the Vans archive, such as the Sk8-Hi, putting a new spin on some classics like the Slip-On Stackform and Authentic Stackform with the help of model Paloma Elsesser.

“This campaign represents a community of creatives and colleagues I call friends,” Paloma said. “Vans invested in my vision for this project, so it feels inspiring to see the images we created—here in New York, with my New York family—all over the city. I’ve been wearing Vans forever, so it’s a full-circle moment.”

Paloma showcases the Sk8-Hi, Slip-On Stackform, Authentic Stackform, and Hi-Def t-shirt, which have been a staple and hallmark for innovators, disruptors, creatives, and freethinkers for decades. The Slip-On Stackform and Authentic Stackform feature an elevated and chunky midsole compared to the OG which brings a ’90s aesthetic to the respective silhouettes.

The Vans “Classic Since Forever” Collection is available now on and for those in the NYC Tri-State, Vans will be hosting Steal This Gallery, an “Off The Wall Experience” in conjunction with Paloma and New York Fashion Week. The event will be open to the public from 12 pm to 8 pm on September 8th and 9th, located at 365 Broadway, Tribeca, New York.
