Limited-edition Vans mark Dodgers' home opener
To mark the Dodgers' home opener (against the Arizona Diamondbacks at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday), Vans has released an extremely limited number of three different Dodger-themed shoes to local Vans Vault accounts. Proper in Long Beach is selling just 12 pair of the 106 Vulcanized LX (above left), Conveyor at Fred Segal in Santa Monica has a dozen pair of the Sk-8 Hi LX (above right) up for grabs, and Undefeated in Silver Lake has 12 pair of the Old Skool LX (not pictured), for which raffle tickets (just for the right to purchase the shoes, mind you) will be handed out at the store at 1 p.m. today, with winners chosen during the seventh-inning stretch.
Each set includes a pair of Vans and matching limited-edition Majestic authentic jersey, with prices being set by each retailer. The Vans Vault X MLB 15-team collection launched on April 3 with the Boston Red Sox release on April 3 and included two styles of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim shoes that were released on April 5.
