Inspired by the early years of California's skate and surf scene, Vans Classics presents the next installment of the Golden Coast Collection featuring the Authentic and Classic Slip-On. It all started nearly 50 years ago when Vans first opened up shop in Orange County: artistic and adventurous types were drawn to the unique colorways and grippy vulcanized outsoles created by SoCal brand, making Vans the go-to footwear for board and bike enthusiasts of the '60s and '70s.
The Golden CoastCollection reminisces over the time period with a special series of checkerboard and two-toned color-ups in vintage tones. The checkered selection showcases the Authentic and Classic Slip-On in five allover prints.
The Golden Coast editions of the Authentic and Classic Slip-On are available now at select Vans retailers. Keep your eyes open for the July release of the Golden Coast versions of the Era, Sk8-Hi and Style 36.
