Vans And The USPS Set To Release Officially Licensed Collection
Is the United States Postal Service the next hot entity in sneaker collabs? While making some headlines earlier in 2021 for Nike’s not-so-hidden reference to the organization with the Air Force 1 Experiment, the USPS is now prepared to drop an actual collab with skate-lifestyle brand Vans, with footwear and apparel inspired by the delivery workers, mail sorters, and other tireless employees that play an integral part in the world of sneakers.
The USPS x Vans collection includes the Authentic, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi MTE, and a Foot Locker-exclusive Sk8-Hi Reissue – each decorated with the ever-recognizable emblems and colors donned by the employees. The Authentic goes with a straightforward all-over-print of the classic logo against a grey black base; the Old Skool takes a classic letter envelope approach with all-white and a stamp on the tongue; the Sk8-Hi MTE is inspired by the official uniforms of delivery workers; the Sk8-Hi Reissue takes after the Priority Mail packaging.
