Vault by Vans Honors Frida Kahlo in its Latest Collection

With some of the artist’s most well-known pieces.

Following a collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum last year, Vans is releasing another range of artist-inspired sneakers. Vault by Vans is honoring the influential late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo with a special lineup featuring three of Vans’ iconic styles: the Sk8-Hi, Authentic, and Slip-On.

The OG Ski8-Hi LX arrives with Kahlo’s self-portrait Las Dos Fridas, depicting two Fridas holding hands, printed around the canvas area along with a dark green upper. The OG Authentic LX is emblazoned with Kahlo’s still-life piece Viva la Vida, a painting of cut watermelon pieces, and comes with white shoelaces. The OG Slip-On LX features Kahlo’s most well-known 1940 piece, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, on the upper, which is contrasted with the black canvas mid and rear section. A green and red Vans tab can be seen on all three pairs, each arriving with a vulcanized sole and crushed leather cushioned heel liner.

The Frida Kahlo x Vault by Vans collection is slated to drop on June 29 at select Vault by Vans retailers.
