Blends and Vault by Vans’ OG Style 36 LX “Magic Tape” Pack Arrives With Velcro-Backed Bone Stripes

Vans is known for dipping its toes into the world of collaborations, and one long-standing partnership it is known for is its partnership with Blends. The OG Style 36 LX “Magic Tape” Pack is the latest project from this Southern California duo, who have collaborated on a number of projects over the years.


The new collection will come in three colorways: “Black,” “Marshmallow,” and “Green,” with the former being the first to hit store shelves.

For each of these looks, the streetwear and footwear retailer has included a brand new feature — velcro overlays — that has never been seen in the company’s previous collaborations with the Anaheim-based skateboarding company. The velcro-backed bone stripes that come packaged with the kicks are applied to the uppers of the shoes so that wearers can mix and match them to their liking.

The “Black” colorway is the first to be released from the capsule, and it features blacked-out base layers and off-white midsole pieces. Blends will release these on May 28th.
