A Collab Stab Loves: Vans x T&C

Two icons walk into a bar.

When two of the longest standing, and most recognizable logos in surf history trade DNA, we believe it’s a cause for celebration.

This vibrant summer collection brought by Vans and T&C is one we’re really into. Classic Sk8 Highs are, and will forever be, Vans most iconic product, and T&C brings the ying to the yang in these kicks. The slides and low cut shoes are also quite nice – a toss back to late 70s and 80s flair with a modern twist. 

Says Vans: “The exclusive Vans x T&C Surf capsule highlights three pairs of Vans Surf footwear and three pieces of Vans apparel. Fusing the two brand’s vivid graphics-heavy aesthetic, Vans transforms the Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF, Authentic SF and the Slide-On with distressed checker all-over patterns, 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.”

Tonight, if you’re in Honolulu, a product launch and pool party will take place at Surfjack Hotel Waikiki from 6-10 PM. If you’re in the area, it’s in your best interest to stop by and have a drink, join the live auction featuring custom T&C surfboards with proceeds going the North Shore Community Land Trust, listen to live music and join the fight to keep the country, country – as they say.

These collabs go fast and we don’t know where you can buy just yet but have our order for some size 10s in with Vans.
