It’s one small step for Vans, one solid sneak for mankind. So-Cal’s finest footwear makers have teamed up with the brainiacs of Houston to produce an Old Skool with interstellar inspiration. The grained leather sneaker is embellished with astro-travelling aesthetics, including a moonboot-esque ribbed midsole and a utilitarian unclosed collar. A Velcro patch on the heel adds the last hint of space-suit styling, giving the design the boost it needs to blast your wardrobe into orbit.
The NASA x Vans OId Skool hasn’t got a solid launch date yet. Stay tuned.
