The collection, which is available now at Vans.com, includes new patterns on the classic silhouettes including the Era, Slip-On and Sk8-Hi. Each of the new styles are decked out in red and white to keep with the theme of the upcoming holiday; they have the slogan “I heart boys, I heart girls” printed across the canvas upper, sole and laces. The price ranges from $55-$65.

The brand also released an LGBTQ+ themed collection last year in celebration of Pride Month. The Love Pack included slip-ons and Sk8-Hi sneakers with the word “love” printed in different colors and languages. Vans also donated $50,000 to The Trevor Project, which is the world’s largest organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to young people in the LGBTQ+ community.
