Vans, the original action sports brand and advocate for creative expression, is set to debut its latest installment of the Anaheim Factory Collection. Paying homage to the brands “Off The Wall” design history, the Anaheim Factory Collection showcases design elements attributed to the original make and models that were once produced in Anaheim, California and reissues them for today with OrthoLiteÔ sock liners. The Anaheim Factory Collection hits stores this July.
First in the Anaheim Factory Collection, Vans reissues the “Stripes” print famously sported by legendary BMX athlete, Eddie Fiola. The Era 96 DX sports OG red stripes and OG blue checks across the multi-panel uppers. The Sk8-Hi 38 DX uses blue suede uppers decorated by the heritage stripe print on the medial sides of the hi-top style. Rounding out the assortment are a second offering of the Era 96 DX and Sk8-Hi 138 DX that showcase Vans’ “Summer Leaf” print. The palm print was originally offered in the ‘70s and was reissued through the Vault by Vans product line and makes its first debut within the Classics assortment. The festive OG black and OG pink print decorates the entirety of Vans’ original skate shoe, the Era 96 DX. The Sk8-Hi 138 features original white suede uppers that are complimented by “Summer Leaf” sidewalls and a white leather Sidestripe. Each model from the Anaheim Factory assortment includes original style numbers, higher-glossed foxing tape, cotton laces and original drill lining weight to complete the retro inspired look.
