In celebration of the Día de los Muertos festival, Vans has unveiled a seasonally appropriate take on a collection dubbed “Loteria.” Featuring the Old Skool, Slip-On and Era, the brand infuses a motif that nods to Mexico’s annual remembrance of the dead.
The “Loteria” collection borrows cues from its namesake, a traditional Mexican card game that originated in the late 1800s.
All of the three silhouettes see prints of Loteria cards on the uppers. The Vans Old Skool gives way to a black canvas upper with white leather side Jazz stripes to balance off the bright graphics, while branded embroidery at the heel completes the look. Constructed using canvas, the Slip-On sees a colorful palette with Loteria embroidery hitting the heel and a serape blanket print on the insoles. For the Vans Era, the silhouette is highlighted by white shoelaces, metal eyelets as well as the serape blanket pattern on the insoles.
You can get the Vans Loteria Collection ranging from $75 to $85 at Van’s website.
