Vans unveils collaboration with RAINS

  • Posted 1 month Ago

As we move into the predictably rainy spring season, Vans has planned ahead and teamed up with Copenhagen-based rainwear experts RAINS for a capsule collection inspired by the Danish capital.

Utilising Vans' Classics Lites technology, the collection merges Vans' timeless aesthetic with RAINS' meticulous attention to detail, resulting in an elevated range that emphasises premium lightweight comfort. UltraCush Lite technology has been implemented into the original Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On silhouettes for high rebound and long-lasting support, while the uppers make use of RAINS' coveted jacket material, reflective details, and custom aglets.

The muted colour palette reflects each brand's heritage and was inspired by the the metal reflectors of Refshaleen, a former industrial island off the harbor of Copenhagen. A unique footbed also features an aerial shot of the area.

The Vans x RAINS collection will be available from only in Europe from 16 March, 2018.
