Former And Vans Reunite For A Graphic-Heavy Sneaker Collection

Back in 2019, Dane Reynolds, Craig Anderson, Austyn Gillette, and Dylan Rieder’s Former label teamed up with Vans for a surfwear collaboration. Fast forward two years, and the two brands are back at it again, this time with a graphic-heavy capsule that comprises of the Vans Destruct Mid MTE-1, Vans Mid Slip MTE-1, and the all-new Vans Surf Boot Hi Split Toe 3MM.

While still maintaining its surfing roots, the collection places a new emphasis on a DIY-inspired aesthetic. The Destruct and Slip are painted in dark green and black colorways, respectively, and come with moisture management, thermoregulation, and traction features that make them perfect for the Fall season. The brand new Surf Boot Hi, on the other hand, boasts a micro-waffle grip for extra performance and split toe design for increased dexterity. This is all equipped with a rubber-dipped upper that’s both flexible and insulating. Elsewhere, the Former x Vans capsule includes a long-sleeve T-shirt and a sherpa-lined Former Jacket that’s decorated with co-branded detailing throughout.

The Former x Vans LTD Collection is scheduled to launch on September 8th, 2022. Available in men’s sizes, an pricing is TBA. The collection with be available via Former, Vans, and select online and in-store retailers worldwide.
