Boston-based boutique Bodega has teamed up with Vans to release a special edition Authentic silhouette inspired by VHS tapes.
The collaboration is a nod to blank VHS tapes that were used during the ’90s and early 2000s. The skate shoe features a suede and nylon upper adorned with blank VHS cassette labeling, and a translucent plastic tongue that recalls the cassette’s magnetic tape spool. The VHS labeling motif continues onto the shoe’s midsole, while the outsole features an RGB color model. An extra detail for VHS connoisseurs is provided by the footbed, which sports a holographic Bodega print, in the style of anti-pirating security stickers.
Each pair will comes with its own special packaging designed to resemble the blank VHS cases. In addition to the shoes, there will also be matching apparel available.
