Vans Surf has linked up with heritage surf and skate brand T&C Surf for a limited collaborative capsule of footwear and apparel.
Stamped by its iconic yin yang logo, T&C Surf celebrates a longstanding history in manufacturing premium surf designs since 1971. Teaming up with Vans, the companies share a unified mission to support of historic surfing heritage, while upholding the essence of Hawaiian surfing to the highest respect.
The capsule is highlighted by three pairs of Vans Surf footwear and three pieces of Vans apparel. Fusing the two brand’s graphics-heavy aesthetic, Vans transforms the Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF, Authentic SF and the Slide-On with distressed checker all-over patterns, which is then anchored by the T&C Surf yin yang logo. The apparel follows suit, offering a bright yellow long sleeve with matching checkered accents, a color blocked drawstring boardshort, a classic black short-sleeve t-shirt and a hat. The full drop is presented in an eye-catching yellow, blue and checker color scheme, perfect for the summer season.
To celebrate the release of this vibrant summer collection, Vans has partnered with the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club to host a special pool party event July 6 at the Surfjack in Waikiki. At the event, there will be a live auction of custom one of a kind T&C surf boards supporting the North Shore Community Land Trust; and is free and open to the public.
