There are few partnerships we appreciate more than Vans and Opening Ceremony.

After releasing a satin update of the Old Skool, Opening Ceremony has dropped its latest masterpiece, a glossy reinterpretation of the classic Slip-On.

The Patent Pack features a glossy painted upper, in five shiny colourways of orange, yellow, green, white and black.

The rubber soles also receive the patent treatment for maximum impact.

The Vans x Opening Ceremony collaboration is due to drop tomorrow, starting at $100USD from Opening Ceremony stores and online.
