Vans x A Tribe Called Quest


Vans has teamed up with American hip-hop collective, A Tribe Called Quest, on an expansive footwear collaboration that utilizes the skate brand’s versatile silhouettes. Paying homage to the legendary careers of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jarobi White, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, this collection features imagery from some of the group’s album cover artwork as well as a few of their signature stick figures. The Vans Authentic, Sk8-Hi, Old Skool, and Slip-On have themes that deal with songs and albums by the likes of “Bonita Applebum” and “The Anthology”. Take a look at the collection below and let us know if you can kick it.
