END. and VANS join forces for the 'Vertigo' pack - an optical remix of VANS' iconic checkerboard motif applied across two of the skate-sneaker brand's most iconic silhouettes - available now on END. Launches
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.
Bringing a duo of VANS classics to dizzying new heights, END. is proud to present the next chapter in the END. x VANS saga.
