Vans has debuted its latest installment of the Anaheim Factory Collection. The selection pays homage to the brand’s “Off The Wall” design history, showcasing design elements from the original make and models that were once produced in Anaheim, California.
The remastered reissues are upgraded OrthoLite sock liners. First in the new Anaheim Factory Collection is the “Stripes” print, which was famously sported by legendary BMX athlete Eddie Fiola. The Era 96 DX sports OG red stripes and OG blue checks across the multi-panel uppers. The Sk8-Hi 38 DX uses blue suede uppers decorated by the heritage stripe print on the medial sides of the hi-top style. Rounding out the assortment are a second offering of the Era 96 DX and Sk8-Hi 138 DX that showcase Vans’ “Summer Leaf” print. The palm print was originally offered in the ‘70s and was reissued through the Vault by Vans product line and makes its first debut within the Classics assortment. The festive OG black and OG pink print decorates the entirety of Vans’ original skate shoe, the Era 96 DX. The Sk8-Hi 138 features original white suede uppers that are complimented by “Summer Leaf” sidewalls and a white leather Sidestripe.
Each model from the Anaheim Factory assortment includes original style numbers, higher-glossed foxing tape, cotton laces and original drill lining weight to complete the retro inspired look.
The 2019 Vans “Anaheim Factory Collection” hits stores this July, as well as online at Vans.com.
