Vault by Vans Celebrates the Year of the Rabbit

Vans and Japanese retailer BILLY’s TOKYO are joining forces once again for an exclusive release. Celebrating 2023’s Year of the Rabbit, a Vault by Vans footwear collection has been prepared with thematic touches throughout.

First, three Vans Slip-Ons arrive in red, green and black colorways that feature their primary color alongside an off-white in Vans’ classic checkered pattern. Amongst the geometry, a yin and yang symbol created by white and black rabbits lands across the upper. Each pair’s sockliner and lining features a red that is fitting for Chinese New Year while the rubber sole unit favors an all-white look with a red Vans logo at the heel.

As for the DIY HI VLT LX, a “DESIGN IT YOURSELF” approach is utilized with various Velcro-backed attachments included to decorate it. Combining elements of the Vans Sk8-Hi and Half Cab, the resulting silhouette serves as a fitting canvas for the pair’s many thematic overlays and trinkets.

The three Vault by Vans Slip-On colorways and the DIY HI VLT LX are scheduled to launch via BILLY’s on January 1. Prices begin at ¥12,100 JPY (approx. $90 USD) for the Slip-On pairs and go up to ¥26,400 (approx. $196 USD) for the DIY HI VLT LX.
