Vans Staff Selections

For us Soleheaven Sneakerheads, Vans holds a dear place in our hearts as the perfect mixture of a brand with a storied sneaker legacy and a contemporary appeal. Equally at home equipped with a pair of tapered suit trousers, cargos, shorts, denim or track pants, the versatility of the brand shines through in every silhouette and our selections too as we pick our favourite styles from the recent seasonal drop.

Dale - Managing Director - Vans X ‘A Tribe Called Quest’ Authentic VA38EMQ8H 
"ATCQ were part of my formative music years, and this collaboration nails their legacy. I chose this ode to Phife Dawg as my selection."
Callum - Merchandise Director Vans Classic Slip-on ‘Hairy Suede’ VA38F7Q8S
“I’ve always really liked the texture a deep suede gives to a pair, and the Slip-On is such a Summer staple it’s a hard combination to miss."
Simon - Store Manager - Vans Old Skool Pig Suede VA38G1R1D
“The materials set this one apart from all the rest, that suede is incredible. And the colourway is so easy going!"
Harry - Dispatch Manager - Vans Authentic ‘Sketch Sidewall’ VA38EMQ6D
“The Authentic is such a classic, but Vans has really made this one stand out. The printed sidewall really does it for me, I love the styling of the branding."
Luke - Photography Manager - Vans Mono Canvas Classic Slip-On VA38F7QD8
"I love a shoe with a contemporary style, so this monochromatic slip-on is perfect for outfits in casual to smart casual wear."
Ollie - Sales & Digital Content Vans X 'A Tribe Called Quest' Old Skool VA38G1Q4B
"I grew up on Tribe's music, particularly their Low-End Theory and Midnight Marauders records, and having the chance to rep the style on a pair of Old Skools means a lot to me"
