You’re Gonna Go Wild for These Glitter-Coated Opening Ceremony x Vans Sneakers
We have some news that sneakerheads are going to love. (We’re lookin’ at you, Viola Davis!) Opening Ceremony has had an ongoing collaboration with Vans for quite some time now, remaking the classic sneaker in some very unexpected ways. Today, the brand released the sparkliest Vans we’ve ever seen. Seriously, you’ll need sunglasses to look at these babies.
The retailer announced the collection on Instagram, saying, “All that glitters is not gold. . . Because it’s much better when it’s pink, blue & grey. Our next first Friday @Vans by #OpeningCeremony drop is … Duh, this Friday, March 3rd— Set an alert bc we’ll be launching The Glitter Pack”
“We wanted to do something that Vans has never done before, so we decided to do this all-over glitter shoe that felt almost like jeweled candy,” Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon told Vogue. Mission accomplished, we say! The shoes come in candy pink, electric blue, and a shimmery gray.
“Vans sneakers are so iconic to us, and we love that they let us interpret their classic silhouettes with crazy, fun OC ideas,” he continued. “We start with the stripped-down tonal packs which are signature to us. And from there we collaborate and play around. We’ve worked on so many amazing styles that will drop throughout the next year, so stay tuned! It’s our blank canvas.”
The Glitter Pack ($110) is available now on Opening Ceremony’s website.
