Commonwealth & Vans Vault "Revolution & Equality"

Commonwealth & Vans Vault "Revolution & Equality"

Commonwealth and Vans, are collaborating for the first time on two classic silhouettes. 

The limited edition Vans Vault release comes by the way of the Era and Slip-On. An exercise in subtle detailing blending inspirations from the art world, the military, and current events. Both silhouettes are dressed with premium suede leather, the Era in “Desert Sage” and the Slip-On in a “Lark Tan”.

Looking for new ways to make narrative or commentary an implicit part of everyday objects, the collab focuses on the delivery of words and ideas featuring “Every Generation Needs A New Revolution” and “People Everywhere Are Created Equal” embossed on the foxing tape along with a checkerboard stripe that is seen wrapped around the midsoles. This complimented by the functionality of a siped sole. Commonwealth branding is discreetly positioned as a highlight on the backside of the tonal Vans woven label.  

The Commonwealth x Vans collection will launch in limited quantities on May 18th, exclusively at Commonwealth flagship stores and online at
