Kick Off May The 4th With A Pair Of New Star Wars Vans
In celebration of the annual Star Wars appreciation day (and coinciding with the announcement of the forthcoming film's cast), Vans just dropped the Vault By Vans X Star Wars collection, featuring a handful of the legendary skate brand's most iconic silhouettes covered in homages to the nearly 37-year-old film franchise.
The extremely limited release (they're only producing 300 pairs) includes the classic slip-on and OG Sk8-HI LXs covered in a tropical AT-AT pattern, and a special version of their signature skull and bones print replaced with Darth Vader and Storm Trooper heads on Era LXs and Sk8-Hi LXs. Though if you're pattern-phobic, they've got you covered with two options: a black leather or cream suede half-cab with labels depicting an epic lightsaber battle between a skateboard-riding Yoda and Darth Vader.
