Vans To Celebrate 25 Years of Foo Fighters

Vans will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Foo Fighters debut album with a Special Edition Sk8-Hi. The show will be available starting on January 28th for Vans Family members. 

The 1995 release of Foo Fighters was the first major step in the ascent of Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee which has become one of most listened to band in the history of music.

The shoe company will join forces with the 12-time Grammy winners to release a special, limited-edition Vans Sk8-Hi on January 29, ahead of the February 5 release of Medicine at Midnight, the bands 10th album.

Vans have been a go-to favorite throughout the Foo Fighters’ career, worn from the studio to stages all around the world. A high rotation style among its members, the band chose the Classic Sk8-Hi for its timeless form, maintaining the iconic appearance of the silhouette and enhancing it with Foo Fighters’ signature emblem. The black, white and red details naturally lend to a perfect collaboration for both Vans and Foo Fighters.

The Sk8-Hi features black uppers with red contrast stitching, the Foo Fighters’ double F logo in white on the medial and lateral sides, and “Foo” and “Fighters” in red on the heel.

A 25th anniversary edition embroidery tag is found on the tongue, and the Sk8-Hi’s traditional Sidestripe is only hinted at, with its shape outlined in contrast stitching—a nod to Foo Fighters’ stripped-down musician style.

Vans Family members will have exclusive access to shop the Vans x Foo Fighters limited edition Sk8-Hi first on January 28th. Click the link to sign up for more information or to purchase when they become available.
