“My crew is never ever wack because we stand strong. Now if you say my style is wack that’s where you’re dead wrong.” Rest in Peace Phife Dawg. The Crew – A Tribe Called Quest, the Style – the new ATCQ x Vans collaboration. With this broad release, Vans pays homage to the iconic rap-group with several different styles honoring their contribution to art, music and overall pop-culture. A Tribe Called Quest represent!
First known as “Style 36”, the Vans Old Skool became an instant hit when it released in 1977, incorporating the now iconic sidestripe for the first time on a Vans shoe. Serving as the canvas for the ATCQ x Vans Collaboration, the Era gets the “Cover Art” treatment. If you look into the discography of A Tribe Called Quest you will find a special black, red and green pattern that starts with “The Low End Therapy” and finds its final appearance on “The Anthology”. The design is featured on the upper, while the laces show-off the LP`s names. The rest of the shoe is kept in black suede on top of a vulcanized gum sole.
