Inspired by surfers of generations past, Los Angeles-based Free & Easy is the culmination of long beach days in Southern California and everything embodied therein.
Drawing from its own iconic SoCal roots since ‘66, Vault by Vans partners with Free & Easy this season on a collection that epitomizes mellow, retro vibes, with a ’70s-inspired palette featuring subdued sun-soaked gold and orange hues alongside a range of ocean-tinted jewel tones. The collection is available at select Vault retailers beginning September 4, 2020.
Leading the Vault by Vans x Free & Easy collection is the OG Sk8-Hi LX in mango mojito/marshmallow and dress blues/marshmallow colorways, complete with Free & Easy’s signature “Don’t Trip” branding across the quarter panel. A psychedelic OG Era LX follows in Yin Yang/marshmallow and Yin Yang/dress blues.
A collection of apparel matches back to the footwear, featuring Vans x Free & Easy PO hoodie in mango mojito, a 380-gram fleece with enzyme wash. Also available are Vans x Free & Easy LS shirt in antique white and a SS T-shirt in dress blues, both crafted from soft, hand-washed jersey. Rounding out the collection are a Vans x Free & Easy unstructured hat, offered in both mango mojito and dress blues colorways, and a Vans x Free & Easy sock.
