Vans Brings Back Archival Imagery in Spring 2021 Anaheim Factory Pack

Including “I’d Rather Be Surfing” graphics.

Vans has once again looked into its archive for its latest Anaheim Factory collection. For the new release, the brand has focused on the Authentic 44 DX silhouette, preparing four Spring-ready colorways of the shoe in white, yellow, blue and “Emerald.”

All four shoes in the Spring 2021 collection feature a colorful canvas upper, with eye-catching details added to the sidewall. Inspired by original sidewall prints from previous Vans releases, the archive graphics feature references to action sports — such as “I’d Rather Be Skiing” or “I’d Rather Be Surfing” — as well as rainbows and multicolored cartoon hearts.

Take a look through all four shoes in the pack in the gallery above. The all-new Anaheim Factory pack is available from the Vans web store now.

In other footwear news, Vans also recently looked to its archive for the ’90s-inspired “OG Pack.”
