Curated by Vans' unofficial ambassador of fun, Steve Van Doren, the collection looks back in to the Vans archives to bring forth vintage Vans prints updated with a holiday twist.

Vans revisits its past by reissuing the skull and bones print from the archives and have updated it to include festive candy cane and Santa hats across the Sk8-Hi 38 and Old Skool 36 Reissue silhouettes.

The Sidestripe footwear models are finished with a canvas and suede material blend and jolly "Ho Ho Ho 50" decorative laces.

To get you in to the holiday spirit, the Van Doren Approved collection includes festive apparel including the Holidaze longsleeve t-shirt, pullover hoodie and sweater that are adorned with the skull and bones Santa print.
