Commemorative sneaker releases are a poignant way to honor and celebrate iconic figures who've impacted our culture. This year, we're looking at a touching tribute from Vans to the late hip-hop artist Mac Miller. Marking the fifth anniversary of Miller's critically acclaimed album, "Swimming," released on August 3, 2018, Complex has reported that Vans is collaborating with the artist's estate to launch a special edition of the Vans Authentic. This release, set for the exact anniversary date, reminds us of Mac's unforgettable influence inside and outside the music industry.

The Mac Miller x Vans Authentic "Swimming" arrives in a clean black canvas upper, keeping to the timeless appeal of the Authentic silhouette. The usual Vans detailing, such as the red branding on the heel and the tag near the laces, maintain the familiar aesthetic. Standing out on the toebox is a yin-yang symbol, with "Swimming by Mac Miller" inscribed along the circle's edge, offering a nod to the album's introspective themes. A white vulcanized rubber midsole holds a poignant message — "Mac Miller 1992 Til ∞" — a testament to the artist's enduring influence. The brand has announced that a portion of the proceeds from this release will benefit the Mac Miller Fund, supporting kids from underserved communities.

The Mac Miller x Vans Authentic Swimming will release August 3, 2023, through Mac Miller's website. As of this writing, the retail price has yet to be announced. Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app for updates on this special release and the latest news in the sneaker and streetwear world.
