A few weeks ago, Vans released its very successful collaboration with Disney for the Vans X Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas collection. This month, Vans has teamed up with Realtree Global, who are synonymous with camouflage hunting gear. Ahead of the holiday season, the duo launch the Vans x Realtree collection. The capsule is based on an assortment of classic Vans silhouettes designed in a camo print.
Realtree Global was established in 1986 when Bill Jordan decided to try his hand at designing a camo pattern, known as Realtree Camouflage. The company grew to become a global leader in outdoor and camouflage pattern innovation, with designs for widespread usage across numerous industries. Today, the pattern is a staple of many streetwear and fashion products.
The collection features numerous classic sneakers from the Vans archives, including the Skate Hi, Classic Slip-On and Old Skool silhouettes, each with unique Realtree patterns.
The Skate Hi is featured in a Realtree Xtra meteorite and snow camo, with the Classic Slip-On in a Realtree AP blaze camo. There are two Old Skool sneakers in the collection. The first features a Realtree AP blaze camo while the second features the Realtree Xtra wild orchid. The collection is rounded off with select apparel and accessories. This includes a men’s Oakmont MTE fishtail anorak made with a rugged 100% polyester ripstop with DWR water-resistant coating and 6oz fill insulation. The collection features a Realtree Camper hat in 5-panel poly-fabric construction, for women.
The Vans x Realtree collection is exclusively available in Vans retail stores.
