It’s kind of hard to figure out who the intended target market is for these ‘Pirate Santa’ adorned Vans Old Skools– festively minded Danzig fans? Regardless, they’re a refreshing take on familiar motif. Candy-canes replace crossbones on the pattern that runs across the canvas panels of the low-top skate staples. The other components keep to the script; the toe caps and heel panel are made up in skate-ready black suede, while the familiar vulc sole keeps it clean in a vintage-white iteration. With a jolly nod to Vans half-century anniversary, the laces are marked with '50 Ho Ho Ho’.
The Vans Old Skool 'Pirate Santa' is available now from Coutie.
