National Geographic is ready to take on its latest adventure.
A multi-sneaker collaborative collection with Vans is releasing soon featuring five of the more popular styles from the California-based skate brand including the Authentic, Era, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Slip-On silhouettes.
Each pair incorporates a different graphic. For instance, the Authentic sports an image of a school of fish throughout the blue canvas upper. The Era is covered with some of the more popular National Geographic magazine covers throughout the years with a vibrant border distinguishing the issues. The Old-Skool incorporates imagery of exotic animals including a wolf and a tree frog on the sides. The Slip-On features Greenland’s Pine Island Glacier and the Sk8-Hi keeps it simple with a black canvas upper and Nat Geo’s signature yellow branding embroidered around the heel.
Each pair includes co-branding throughout the styles along with a vulcanized midsole and a waffle-styled outsole for comfort and durability.
