XLarge dubbed this season's theme as Summer of Love, and this collaboration with VANS explores that same notion. For starters, they selected to use the Authentic model, which was first launched in 1966, coinciding with the whole hippie movement. To incorporate iconic visual symbols from hippie culture and VANS, the designers combined multicolored tie-dye pattern and monotone checker flag pattern onto the canvas upper. These sneakers are slated to release from Saturday, July 6 from XLarge stockists in Japan, as well as calif online shop and XLarge Japan online shop. Pre-order indicates its massive popularity, so you should act fast if you want to get your hands on these kicks.
