As an ongoing tribute to the brand’s beginnings as a family-run company, Vans continues its Van Doren Collection by reissuing three vintage prints for holiday 2014. Pulling its namesake from the family that brought Vans to life, the Van Doren Collection takes unique patterns from the early years to uppers of select Classics silhouettes. Vans’ original lace-free design, the Classic Slip-On, kicks things off with the black and white Geo Tribe print taken directly from a made in USA, Vans t-shirt from 1988. The Era follows up with two retro-styled colorways dating back to the early ‘90s. The multicolored Geo Native print brings a lively mix of blue, red, white and orange to the coveted low-top while the Repeat Skull graphic surfaces just in time for Halloween, with a spooky allover skull arrangement across the second color-up of the lace-up.

The Van Doren Collection retails for $50 USD each style and is available now at select Vans Classics stockists.
