Vans Old Skool

Releasing in a couple of days, here is a good look at the Vans Mule Pack. The Vans Mule Pack includes altered iterations of the Vans Old Skool and Vans Slip-On by removing the heels of each respective model. What you end up getting are mule iterations of each silhouette. For the most part, the Slip-On remains the same, whereas the Old Skool still comes with laces, but since the heel is removed, the laces really have no function. Coming in bold colors that are ideal for the season, look for the Vans Mule Pack to make its debut on May 15th.

At just 15 years old, Brighton Zeuner is a force to be reckoned with. The two-time Vans park terrain skateboarding world champion serves as inspiration to young skaters everywhere in the face of a male-dominated professional skateboarding landscape.

“I have a different style every day,” Brighton admits, “but my dream was to create a collection that I personally like, and that other girls and guys would enjoy, too. I picked the primary colors because it reminds me of being a child and being young – those are my happy colors, if you will.”

Vans is celebrating Brighton’s distinct style and penchant for creative self-expression with the introduction of the Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro, a new colorway in the Vans Classics lineup, as well as an apparel pack, all designed under the direction of Brighton’s distinctive, color-driven ethos.

The Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro features extra tough, tech-driven attributes that Vans Pro Skate is known for. A suede-and-canvas upper receives custom Brighton Zeuner embroidery treatment, while Duracap technology delivers reinforced underlays in high-wear areas, creating an unrivaled level of durability that prolongs the life of the shoe. PopCush – a brand-new foam recipe—makes the shoe meticulously tuned for impact protection, superior cushioning and better energy return.

The pack also includes the Brighton baby tee, cami body suit, BF hoodie, skirt, and Authentic Pro Pant, plus the Brighton bucket hat, low-height crew sock, and colorblock backpack. Each are adorned with intricate detailing, including embroidery of her childhood signature and a bright floral pattern – inspired by a doodle in her gradeschool notebook— and rubberized heel tab patch.

“My favorite part of designing this collection with Vans was taking thrift items or clothes in my closet that I love, and using them as inspiration to create some of the dream pieces that I’ve always wanted,” Brighton said. “I’ve worn Vans since I first started skating, and it’s crazy to say I get to work with a company I’ve admired from such a young age.”

Representing the future of skateboarding, Brighton has accomplished a lifetime’s work all before she can legally drive a car. Her flawless trick execution underscores a natural ability to land every maneuver with style and grace and serves as an inspiration and example for aspiring skaters everywhere who are looking to break down the status quo.

The Vans Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro and apparel pack is available now at Vans retailers and vans.com.
