From Southern California's skateboard culture to the world stage, Vans has had an enduring journey since its Anaheim factory opened its doors in 1966. Partnering with WP, the Italian-based retailer known for its refined approach to streetwear, Vans returns to its roots with a revamp of the Authentic 44. This collaboration celebrates Vans' heritage while blending in WP's distinguished taste.

The Authentic 44 Pack arrives in three colorways: "Black," "OG Navy," and "Racing Red." Each sneaker flaunts a patchwork construction imbued with a charming medley of paisley prints and diverse patterns. This whimsical aesthetic harks back to the creative energy of the Californian streets. Paying homage to the original Vans Authentic, the sneakers incorporate the OG drill lining, a more resilient cotton fabric for a durable finish. Each pair sits atop a vulcanized rubber midsole, and underfoot is a gum outsole providing the quintessential Vans grip. Final touches include a co-branded insole, subtly celebrating the collaboration.

The WP x Vans Authentic 44 Pack will release on June 8 through Vans, WP, and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $80.
