Vault by Vans is proud to partner with designer and multidisciplinary artist Nicole McLaughlin on a collection highlighting her love for vintage gardening totes and workwear aprons. Known for her tongue-in-cheek designs, McLaughlin transforms the Vans Slip-On into a functional yet fun work of art while utilizing a mix of recycled and responsibly sourced materials. The collection brings sustainability and waste discussion to the forefront of this collaboration, an essential principle component for McLaughlin and Vans.
The concept of function and design comes to life with the Vault by Vans Slip-On VP VR3 LX, offering a renewed purpose to the silhouette with storage pockets across the toe vamp. The Brown/Grey colorway is inspired by a workwear bucket bag often carried to and from the job site. The silhouette is finished with custom Nicole McLaughlin labels and a custom ankle collar strap for a functional way to carry and store your shoes.
The Vault by Vans x Nicole McLaughlin Slip-On VP VR3 LX upper was built with a combination of organic cotton canvas and 100% rPET. The shoe also features a Vans’ biobased foam VR3Cush™ footbed that was made using at least 25% biobased EVA foam partially derived from plants per ASTM D6866-16 reference standard. The new VR3Waffle™ outsole contains 60% responsibly sourced natural rubber obtained from sources that follow proven sustainable practices with the intention of reducing impacts on the planet while still maintaining the grip and durability that Vans has been known for since 1966.
