Friends Claire Lampert and Stacy Daily of B Sides are true artists when it comes to reworking vintage denim, and it turns out they’re just as good at transforming high-tops too. Only 20 pairs of these hand-paint-splattered Vans with vintage-bandana laces were made exclusively for us—so find out more about the sneaks then nab a pair, quick (!).
Talk to us about the inspiration behind your design.
Street meets desert. We drive through Abiquiú, New Mexico, twice a year and obsess over American ranch workwear, references that are both modern and vintage. Georgia O’Keeffe’s effortless way of pairing denim with tailored shirting and her navy and white bandana collection influenced our reworked series of classic Sk8-Hi Vans®, jeans and jean jackets.
Where do you imagine someone wearing this pair?
While pushing mongo at the Venice Beach skate park.
Pick a song that sums up the vibe of these Vans.
It would be from a Francis Bebey album—probably “New Track.”
What’s your go-to wear-with-sneakers outfit?
A T-shirt dress.
And finally, what are three words you’d use to describe these sneaks?
American. Tomboy. Cool.
