Vans Is Releasing a Brand-New Silhouette, the Sid NI

Inspired by its 1995 Vans Sid skate silhouette.

Just in time for summer, Vans is releasing a new silhouette inspired by its 1995 skate silhouette, the Sid NI. Last year, the label saw the drop of the Sid Pro in collaborations with streetwear brand Supreme, and this time around, Vans is reissuing the Sid NI with design cues referencing the original.

The retro-inspired silhouette will be available in two graphic glitter colorways, including a blue and black iteration. Sporting a white platform midsole, the sneaker sees its sparkly upper embroidered with Vans’ vintage “Flying-V” logo at the lateral, and is finished off with a tonal canvas tongue as well as silver grommet detailing. “The concept behind the Sid NI was to bring a new context to a classic Vans skate silhouette. We updated the proportion by adding a platform sole and modernized the vulcanized construction with an UltraCush drop-in sock liner for comfort. By mixing modern proportions with heritage design elements including the exaggerated Flying-V logo we are able to celebrate what made the original Sid so special,” Vans Footwear Designer Rafael Mayorga exclusively tells us about the release.

The ’90s-inspired Vans Sid NI will hit select Vans retail stores as well as vans.com this June. Take a look at the two iterations in the gallery above.
