Vans is bringing back a ’90s favorite — but with a modern, party-worthy twist.

Vans designers gave the vintage flying V-logo an overhaul, adding an oversized embroidery design with stripe detailing. It comes in two colorways: princess blue and black. Both shoes come complete with a tonal canvas tongue and silver grommet detailing.

In addition to the new design elements, Vans updated the shoes to make them more comfortable. The latest version of the Sid NI features an Ultra-Cush drop-in sockliner to improve comfortability for the wearer.
