Wyland x Vans ‘Kraken’ – Classic Printed Slip-on Shoe
Wyland and Vans have paired up to create these beautiful, limited-edition shoes featuring “Octopus Seas,” one of Wyland’s most iconic images in support of our ocean and waterways. Steve Van Doren, vice president of Vans and son of founder Paul Van Doren, worked closely together with Wyland to create a never-before-seen look exclusively for supporters of the Wyland Foundation.
Most folks know their size in slip-on Vans. Since these are a custom style, and the canvas is heavier, these may fit a bit more snugly than mass-market Vans so if you are in between sizes you may want to consider sizing up a 1/2 size.
All proceeds from your purchase will benefit the foundation’s local, regional and national efforts for cleaner waterways and healthier oceans.
Did you know??? Cotton makes up 14% of a typical Vans shoe. The BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) works to reduce the environmental impact of cotton production and improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton producing areas. Vans has been sourcing BCI cotton since 2014. Their goal is to source 100% sustainable cotton by 2025.
