Vans x Baker Old School Pro “Black/Red”

Vans is back, this time teaming up with Baker Skateboards for a graphic-heavy capsule of sneakers, shirts and hoodies. Featured footwear silhouettes include classics like the Vans Old Skool Pro, Sk8-Hi Pro, Slip-On Pro and Style 112. Each model sees Baker Skateboard’s logo sporadically emblazoned in bold arrangements of red, black and white. As finishing notes, the sneakers are completed with Baker’s slogan scrawled over the walls of the midsole: “Giving Skateboarding a bad name since 2000".
 The lineup of apparel also follows the thematic color scheme, displaying red accents over monochromatic bases. One highlight is the Baker Boys T-shirt, displaying warped photos of street signs on the front and back, juxtaposing slogans from each brand; the words “Off the wall since 1966” is placed at the front while “Giving skateboarding a bad name since 2000” appears at the back. Other pieces like a crisp white pair of pants, socks, a six-panel cap and a hoodie round up the bold range. The Baker Skateboards x Vans Capsule is currently available at vans.com, ranging from $24 to $75 USD.
