Vans Unveils Island Vibes Women’s Sneakers for Spring 2016

Aloha, Vans! The Cypress, Calif.-based sneaker brand has released a new series of women’s sneakers with a tropical groove.

The Island Vibes pack, on sale now at Vans.com, features some of the label’s most popular silhouettes updated with Hawaiian-inspired prints, such as a guitar-playing hula dancer, hibiscus flowers and tropical foliage.

The first new print, dubbed Digi Hula, features a photorealistic pattern showing a hula doll dancing across a white, navy or black background. The print is offered on three Vans styles: the Sk8-Hi Reissue high-top, Old Skool mid-cut sneaker and Authentic low-profile laceup.

This year, Vans is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the brand — which is known for best-selling collaborations with Disney, Marc Jacobs, Takashi Murakami and Mötörhead — has been releasing a number of special collections to mark the occasion.

Earlier this month, it embraced its history with an extra-special retro checkerboard collection. And in March, Vans debuted the Gold Pack, featuring shoes, apparel and accessories with gold accents.
