END. x VANS 'Vertigo' Lands In Store at END. This Saturday

END. x VANS takeover the END. flagship stores, dressing each in a fresh iteration of the 'Vertigo' motif - launching in store on Saturday 8th December

Steady your sight, this isn’t a trick of your peripheral vision.

END. presents a custom remix of VANS’ iconic black and white checkerboard motif, blurring the lines between illusion and reality to create an optical-whirl designed to set heads spinning and dizzy the mind.

An irreverent play of push and pull, steady and sway, END. takes VANS’ global calling-card and puts it on spin-cycle to create a fresh iteration of one of skate and street culture’s most iconic patterns – reapplying it to two of the US-based sneaker institutions most revered styles in a premium textile palette of woven jacquard, 6. 0z canvas, and luxury leathers.

The OG Slip-On LX puts the pattern on full display, wrapping the jacquard uppers in a swathe of unsteady checkerboard, accented with true white stitching, panels of tan leather and a premium pig-skin lining. Arguably the most iconic skate shoes of all time, the END. x VANS ‘Vertigo’ Slip-On LX brings fresh perspective to the silhouette – a lifestyle take on a half-pipe classic.

Opting for a more restrained approach, the OG Old Skool LX experiments with panelling and motif-placement for a hyper-wearable iteration of a heritage style. Arriving with three sets of laces – including a custom checkerboard lace – the OG Old Skool LX offers the opportunity to switch up the style as you see fit, making it an essential addition to your daily sneaker rotation.

Finished with a custom grey VANS ‘Off the Wall’ patch to the heel and a co-branded checkerboard in-sole, both sneakers arrive packaged in an exclusive ‘Vertigo’ collector’s box designed to trick the eyes with its expanse of warped checkerboard. Due to the nature of the weaving process, each pair from the pack features a different expression of the Vertigo motif, making each pair entirely unique.

Dressing each of our three flagship stores in a unique iteration of the mind-bending checkerboard, VANS takes over END. this weekend as the sneakers land in-store on Saturday 8th December.

The END. x VANS 'Vertigo' Pack is now available for registration on END. Launches.
