Parks Project's mission is to protect and preserve our parklands for generations to come by educating, advocating, volunteering, and activating park supporters to get involved in conservation. Dedicated to empowering the next generation of Park Champions, the Vans x Parks Project Old Skool celebrates our shared passion for adventure and creative exploration with custom artwork reminding us all to appreciate the natural wonders of our parks . . . but leave them better than we found them. Made with sturdy suede and textile uppers, this iconic sidestripe shoe also features the Vans checkerboard print, padded collars for support and flexibility, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
