A blast from the past, Vans Vault takes us back more than three decades, reissuing two vintage prints created for Peanuts in 1983.
These special patterns commemorated the opening of Camp Snoopy in Knott’s Berry Farm and were used on Vans footwear sold exclusively at the Southern California amusement park. Fall 2014 revives the long-gone prints on a selection of Vault by Vans Original Classics for Peanuts and Vans fans alike, in a range of adult and toddler sized sneakers.
Classic ‘Camp Snoopy’ and ‘Snoopy and the Gang’ prints adorn the Authentic LX, Era LX and Sk8-Hi LX.
The collection releases this July at key Vans Vault retailers including Vans DQM General New York and Boston, Blends, Bodega, Bows & Arrows, Compound Gallery, Conveyor, Dover Street Market, Fice, Hot Rod, Kicks/HI, Kicks/HI Guam, Nice Kicks, Palace 5ive, Premium Goods, Proper, Ron Robinson, Saint Alfred, Sole Classics, The Darkside Initiative, UBIQ, Undefeated and Wish Atlanta. Adult styles retail from $60 to $70, while toddler options are $40 each.
