Vans unites with iconic hip-hop collective, A Tribe Called Quest and Sony Music’s innovative merchandising company The Thread Shop, to unveil an exclusive footwear collection that is quite possibly the best thing ever for you music head outs there.
Paying tribute to the style, art, music, and originality of the artist’s immense cultural influence since the early 1990s, Vans celebrates A Tribe Called Quest’s outstanding contributions to music and pop culture with footwear designs that memorialize their iconic album artwork and the vibrant song lyrics forever embraced by audiences from London to Brooklyn.
The exclusive collection offers a range of Vans classic silhouettes including the Slip-On, UltraRange, Old Skool, Slip-On, Authentic and our favourite the Sk8-Hi in bold colours and prints, illustrating the group’s most favourite milestones of their career. For A Tribe Called Quest fans, surely the footwear designs speak volumes to the band’s beloved discography and essential for any real Tribe fan. The Sk8-Hi features odes to their well-known Bonita Applebaum track with album artwork and printed lyrics on the shoelaces, quarter panels and lining. And a truly special rendition comes from the Authentic, which honours the life of the late Phife Dawg, who passed away in 2015.
The Vans x A Tribe Called Quest collaboration is available across Europe online and in retail stores from April 6th, 2018. Visit Vans.eu for more details.
