Vans Off the Wall launches their latest global sneaker series with a collection of footwear inspired by LA's La Brea and Fairfax neighborhoods.

The first of several city-inspired collections to release as part of the new OTW global sneaker series, LA's selection features new looks for the Bedford, Prescott and Tesella silhouettes. Each shoe is inspired by So Cal's sneaker scene and feature designs reminiscent of classic athletic wear and skate fashion.

Celebrating the launch of the Block Collection, OTW will be hosting a block party in the heart of Los Angeles. On March 1, OTW will take over Los Globos on Sunset Boulevard for a VIP event featuring art by SuS BoY and live music by Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer and Salva, with one of the hottest LA-based emcees closing out the night as the special guest performer.

The Block Collection is set to hit select Vans OTW accounts in March.
