This season, Vans and Stüssy have joined forces to create a unique capsule collection, available exclusively at General Pants Co. . As a tribute to their roots in skate and street fashion, Vans and Stüssy have compiled an assortment of prints not seen since the ’80s and ’90s, paired with Vans Original Classics silhouettes, OG Era LX, OG Sk8-Hi LX, and OG Style 36 LX.

The prints, much like the Vans silhouettes, are iconic, and hold a special piece of history in their design. The Stüssy Bones print first debuted in 1988 and resurfaces this season as a collage pattern on the OG Era LX, while the the Stüssy 8 Ball print, which was introduced more than 20 years ago, and remains one of Stüssy’s most celebrated prints marks its return on the quarter panels on the OG Sk8-Hi LX. Closing out the collection is the Stüssy Tom Tom print, revived on the OG Style 36 LX. First drawn by Shawn Stüssy in 1986, the Tom Tom pattern reappears on the medial and lateral sides of the skate lace-up.

The collection, featuring the iconic prints from Stüssy and classic Vans footwear designs, the capsule collection is available now both online and in-store at General Pants Co. starting from RRP $99.95
