Robert Verdi requested that Vans make him a few pairs of custom kicks out of his vintage Hermes scarf collection for his personal use. The upscale prints and rubber street soles make the collaboration seem like they were made for one another. Since 1937 Hermes has been designing their classic silk scarves, which elevated the companies to iconic status. Equally in 1966 when Paul Van Doren sold his first pair of Vans on the streets of Anaheim California, with the same rubber sole we see today. The rubber of the soles, and the silk of the scarves, are the two materials in which society will always remember these brands.
