Concepts Is Dropping a Limited-Edition Vans Old Skool Collection on April 20

As the iconic Vans Old Skool continues to have a moment, New England-based retailer Concepts is serving up a limited-edition collaboration boasting three styles.

According to Concepts, this three-sneaker collection is inspired by a vintage Jamaican print, which appears prominently across each Old Skool’s canvas upper. Each style adds premium suede and a padded tongue to the classic skate shoe, which also features a vulcanized rubber midsole and Vans’ signature waffle tread.

However, Concepts will release a limited number of the orange pairs at its NYC and Cambridge, Mass., locations Thursday, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each style in this collab retails for $95 and will launch in-store on Thursday. An online release via cncpts.com will follow on Friday at 12 p.m. ET.
