Boys of Summer Teams with Vans to Rework the Old Skool, Rowan Pro and Varix

Skate video outfit Boys of Summer has teamed up with Vans for a free-flowing footwear collection. Consisting of new takes on the Old Skool, Rowan Pro and Varix, the offerings are what Boys of Summer has labeled “shared pro models,” fresh takes on signature skate shoes that here represent more than one skater and are all done up in a mixture of navy, black and white.

First up is the Skate Old Skool, designed for Sci-Fi Fantasy founder Jerry Hsu and “Baby Girl.” A repeating “Boys of Summer” hit wraps the midsoles, while the shoe’s namesakes are present on the heel counters and “Good Times, Bad Times” graces the tongue. Next is the Rowan Pro. Normally Rowan Zorilla‘s signature shoe, here it represents both Zorilla and the “Red Devil,” Aidan Mackey, with “Rowan” and “Aiden” on the heel plus the same repeating midsole print as the Old Skool. Last but not least is the Varix in a “Manute/Steve Lee” makeup. A more chunky model than its compatriots, the Varix nods to ’90s skate aesthetics with a chunky suede-and-mesh upper equipped with graphic hits. All three pairs are completed by crystal-clear rubber outsoles.

The Boys of Summer x Vans collection is set to release via the Vans webstore come May 27, and MSRPs have yet to be announced.
