Vans hits the fall season with a blast from the past for the Vault by Vans x Peanuts collection. Taking it back over three decades, Vans reissues two vintage prints created for the Peanuts crew in 1983. These special patterns commemorated the opening of Camp Snoopy in Knott’s Berry Farm and were used on Vans footwear sold exclusively at the Southern California amusement park. Fall 2014 revives the long-gone prints on a selection of Vault by Vans Original Classics for Peanuts and Vans fans alike, in a range of adult and toddler sized sneakers.
Snoopy livens up the OG Classics assortment with his likeness allover each pair. In the “Snoopy and the Gang” print, the iconic beagle can be seen in various situations with fellow Peanuts crew such as Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty and his pal Charlie Brown, for two nostalgic colorways of the OG Authentic LX and a solo take on the OG Sk8-Hi LX.
The “Camp Snoopy” motif showcases Snoopy’s alter ego, Joe Cool, in a collage arrangement across dual color-ups of the OG Era LX and an additional installment of the OG Sk8-Hi LX.
The limited edition capsule is sized down to toddler styles as well, with four varieties of the OG Authentic LX available for tiny tikes.
