While fellow LA brand Blends will launch another "Bones" collaboration alongside Vans this weekend, Union LA will be celebrating Black History Month with a Vans collab of their own.

Utilizing the Old Skool, Slip-On and Authentic ComfyCush LX models, the sneakers are covered in custom Kente cloth, an interwoven silk and cotton fabric native to the Akan ethnic group of Ghana. Chris Gibbs, owner of Union was inspired by the Kente cloth Authentic that Vans previously released and said, "I always wanted those, but was never able to cop, so we made a new version for ourselves.”

You can purchase the Union LA x Vans ComfyCush LX collection on February 16 at unionlosangeles.com and in-store.

Release Date: 2/16/19 (Saturday)
