Good news for sneakerheads: you can now get your hands on OG Vans
Vans fans rejoice! The legendary skate brand has recreated some of their original styles, and you can get your hands on them now.
Sneakerheads, sk8r girls, and fans of ’60s style will all appreciate these rad AF reissues. The Anaheim Pack collection channels Southern California vintage vibes, and it’s so dope. The collection is named after the city where the original Vans factory was located. Anaheim, California is home to Disneyland and the hometown of forever bae Gwen Stefani. Clearly, it’s a creative vortex of all things cool, colorful, and magical.
The perfect warm yellow shade evokes the Southern California sunshine.
The kicks feature original detailing from the first 1966 collections, but they incorporate Vans’ UltraCush footbed for modern comfort. Color choices include throwback colors like mineral green and racing red. Each style is assigned a number, just like they were back in the day.

Vans Classics senior director of merchandising Dabney Lee told Refinery29:
"We wanted a chance to tell the story behind all of the original design details and create a retro pack that honored Vans’ California roots. The attention to retro design resonates with Vans fans and the classic silhouettes — the Authentic, Sk8-Hi, and Old Skool — have been fan favorites for over 50 years. The collection is a testament to our heritage and our commitment to progression for the future."
