Inspired by the iconic 1982 LA rising sun license plate.
Inspired by the California sunshine, VANS taps Rhuigi Viallasenor's new-wave streetwear label, RHUDE, for a quintessentially LA iteration of the UA Bold silhouette.
Having spent his formative years immersed in the sunshine state's prolific skate culture, Manila-born and LA-raised Viallasenor's familiarity with the classic skate-shoe brand goes back to the very beginning. Taking inspiration for the iconic 1982 rising sun license plate, this fresh take on the UA Bold arrives in a graphic flash of racecar red and feature a range of co-branded details around the foxing tape and heel tab. Finished with VANS' iconic checkerboard motif underfoot, the VANS x RHUDE UA Bold Ni is a true meeting of the minds beneath the tequila sunrise in LA.
