Discovery and Vans just dropped a Shark Week collection that you’ll want immediately
This line is worth taking a bite out of your bank account for.
If you're in the market for some rather standout footwear options, Vans has you covered. In celebration of Shark Week, the label has teamed up with Discovery to release two seriously cool new shoe options to help you make a splash.
Comprised of both the popular Sk8-Hi and Slip-On Vans silhouettes, the Shark Week line offers up two very different style options. The Sk8-Hi is a tribute to the powerful (and terrifying) nature of sharks, with a hungry looking unit featured mid-jump at the side stripe. The classic white side stripe itself has been bitten in half, making for a pretty unique and eye-catching design. The rest of the shoe meanwhile arrives in a sleek black colourway with sturdy canvas and suede uppers, reinforced toecaps and signature waffle outsoles.
While the Sk8-His might make you think twice about getting in the water, the Slip-Ons might just convince you that sharks are your new favourite sea creature. The playful design features an all-over cartoon shark print marked with mismatched stripe and polka dot patterns. The Shark Week Slip-Ons also include sturdy canvas uppers, elastic side accents and signature waffle outsoles that will prevent wear and tear.
Both designs have already been released on the US Vans online store, though there's no word yet on when we'll see them become available on the Australian site. Typically though, we see new Vans drops a few weeks after the US, so keep a keen eye on the horizon.
The Slip-Ons are retailing for US$65, while the Sk8-Hi iteration will set you back US$75. All proceeds from the collaborative collection will support Oceana's mission to protect the world's oceans, making for a pretty convincing argument as to why you need a pair. Whichever option you decide on, they're sure to complement your wardrobe swimmingly.
