Vans Leopard Old Skool: Classic sneaker with a twist

Vans Old Skool, also known as Style #36, was the first silhouette to exhibit Vans' iconic side stripe and the first skate shoe to use leather panels. Because of its simplicity, people saw the opportunity to personalize their Old Skools using pens and markers, turning the Old Skool into one of the most popular footwear in the 80s.

Since its release, there are countless Old Skool variations - the Vans Leopard Old Skool is one of them. This low-top sneaker fits entirely well in the street-style category. It exhibits an eye-catching print on its suede and textile upper and bears the iconic side stripe Vans branding on the side.

What makes the Leopard Old Skool stand out a mile?

To keep up with the endless evolution of sneaker fashion, Vans reworked it Vans Old Skool with animal print on the upper. The leopard print that graces the upper gives the silhouette its own identity and separates this version of the classic Vans Old Skool from its predecessor.
