Vans x Anderson .Paak Collab Is Up For Its Second Installment
A follow-up assortment of footwear, apparel and accessories inspired by the rapper’s sons, Soul Rasheed and Shine.
Last month, the skateboarding apparel and footwear brand Vans welcomed Anderson .Paak into their family as the first official Global Music Ambassador. As a global advocate for artistry and creative expression, Vans decided to start off the month of December by continuing the new partnership and delivering a follow-up assortment of footwear, apparel and accessories designed by Mr. Paak himself. Inspired by his sons, Soul Rasheed and Shine, the second Vans collection designed by .Paak is a dedication to the Grammy-award winning artist’s family and creative spirit.
With the new offering, the rapper also promises to deliver more creative inspiration: “I wanted color, and vibrancy, and fun. I want people to see these shoes and feel happy, especially during these times. Kids included. My sons are my inspiration, so we needed to make sure we included sizes for all ages. Everyone should be able to rock Vans!”
Using Vans’ original skate school as his canvas, the artist reimagined the Old Skool in two fun and funky colorways inspired by his sons, Soul and Shine. The Old Skool Soulito is decorated with cozy purple uppers, and a second Old Skool Ziti uses multi-panel colorblocking in blue, purple and green on its fuzzy suede. To complement the sneaker offerings, .Paak also brought a reversible purple plaid/solid purple Chore Jacket, along with a bucket hat available in purple plaid and kelly green terrycloth colorways.
The second installment of the Vans x Anderson .Paak collaboration will be available globally starting Friday, December 11 on vans.com. Vans Family members can sign up for an exclusive early-access offer by logging in here.
