Vans Combines Skulls and Paisley on Its New "Bandanna" Pack

Artfully-printed takes on the Style 36 and Slip-On, both nodding to traditional bandannas.

Both the Style 36 and Slip-On are constructed from a sail-colored retro canvas, though the Style 36 adds extra texture with a soft tan suede toebox, eyestays and heel plus a white leather Jazz Stripe. Bandanna print is done up in black and infuses its paisley with a healthy dose of skull motifs. On the Style 36, a shoe sometimes confused with the Old Skool, the bandanna print is relegated to the quarters and the collar. On the Slip-On, it’s more omnipresent, reaching from the toe all the way to the heel. Both are finalized by white midsoles with a black heel badge and cream foxing stripe.

The Vans “Bandanna” pack will release at BILLY’s Tokyo come March 13. The Style 36 is priced at ¥7,500 JPY (approximately $69 USD) while the Slip-On arrives at ¥6,000 JPY (approximately $55 USD). Both prices are exclusive of tax.
