Vans and National Geographic come together for a collection of footwear and apparel that celebrates over 130 years of the never-ending quest to explore our planet. Honoring National Geographic’s longstanding tradition of seeking and storytelling, the Vans X National Geographic Classic Slip-On is meant to bring attention to the dramatic reduction of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. The Then/Now Glacier style features National Geographic photographs of the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica. The shoes feature sturdy low profile slip-on organic cotton canvas uppers, padded collars, elastic side accents, and signature rubber waffle outsoles. *The Pine Island Glacier, featured in the National Geographic images on the shoe, is located in Antarctica. During the design process the shoe was mislabeled as Greenland, and Antarctica was mistakenly omitted from the description.
