Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Authentic “Acid” Pack

Saint Alfred traverses the trippy world of psychedelics with its latest collaborative Vans Authentic, painting a picture of chaotic visuals and sensory overload with a theme fittingly dubbed the “Acid” pack. With artwork sprawled by the ever-surreal Ben Marcus, the pairs come to life in its option between neutral monochromatic and vibrant yellows. Checkerboard prints see their way across the white midsole for a note of Jazz Stripe heritage while the uppers are left traditional in shape. Their all-over prints, however, are anything but with both pairs sporting an almost white noise mosaic with notable contrast by way of the white splatters and crackles; the light yellow pair is much harder to depict by comparison with the tones blending in with one another as if an ocular illusion. Check out a detailed look at both sets and the accompanying artwork right below.
