Mike Gigliotti, artist, designer, skater, and founder of Lotties Skateshop, has teamed up with Vans Skateboarding to release a collaborative collection of footwear and apparel.

The star of the collection is the Skate Half Cab, dressed in a familiar two-tone blue color scheme. Gigliotti knows you don’t need to tamper with a classic too much, so his own personal twists to the silhouette are fairly minimal. The lateral tags and tongue tags feature custom graphics, with additional Gigliotti artwork debossed on the heels and printed on the insoles.

The Skate Old Skool in the collection is a bit louder, with Gigliotti’s signature hand-drawn graphics completely covering the base of the upper. This all-over print incorporates skulls, barbed wire, roses, and spectral figures, and is also found across the apparel pieces. The Skate Old Skool comes in a blue/black color scheme, blending two classic Old Skool colorways, split by a red Jazz Stripe. The shoe also features full color artwork on the insoles. Rounding out the footwear is a Trek Slip-On in black with an all-over red graphic print, accompanied by matching board shorts and a beach towel.

The Mike Gigliotti x Vans Skateboarding collection will be available starting Friday, July 29th on vans.com/skateboarding and at select retailers. Prices range from $45 to $85 USD. Check out the collection below.
