Inspired by the resurfacing of 90’s skate styles, Vans revives the iconic Knu Skool silhouette. This sneaker first reappeared last year for the Vault by Vans x Imran Potato Collection, which also featured the Vans SK8-HI VR3 LX.
The archived silhouette returns in colorways of “Black/True White,” “Navy/True White,” “Pink Glo,” and “Black/Black.” The revamped sneaker is given a modern refresh that’s inspired by the 90’s, but built for today.
The low top has an extra stuffed tongue and ankle collar that gives the sneaker a bulky look. The upper is crafted with suede and is adorned with a diamond beveled Vans Sidestripe. Finishing details include a chunky midsole, signature rubber waffle outsoles, and pull tabs inspired by the classic Vans Old Skool, for easy in-and-out access.
The sneaker’s honorary features Vans Skateboarder Beatrice Domond, fashion personality Irene Kim, musician Little Simz, skateboarder and activist Felipe Nunes, and more. As part of the “This is Off The Wall” campaign, each Vans ambassador shares how they live and work together authentically to form a generation propelling culture forward.
The Vans Knu Skool is now available. To purchase, visit Vans.com and select retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
