Vans and Nice Kicks are partnering up for Vulcanized Vinyl, a pop up shop that will park itself in Austin, Texas during this year’s SXSW music festival, which kicks off March 9 and runs through March 18.
The shop’s hours of operation are noon to midnight and it will be situated at 313 E. 6th Street. Open daily from noon to midnight every day of the festival, the store will carry a nice selection of tees, tanks and accessories including a limited edition Vulcanized Vinyl tee.
For the first time ever, Vans is re-issuing five of the most popular band shoe projects in a first come, first served offering from March 13 to March 17. Make sure you arrive early before store opening at noon so you can cop a pair of re-issues from Slayer (March 13), Descendents (March 14), Bad Religion (March 15), Iron Maiden (March 16) and Social Distortion (March 17). Vans will offer concierge service, delivering the shoes to major hotels in the Austin area.
“Vulcanized Vinyl is a great opportunity to work together with a key boutique partner in Nice Kicks as we uniquely present Vans Classics and California collections and key apparel items in a way that underscores Vans long musical heritage,” said Vans Vice President of Marketing Doug Palladini. “We think that SXSW’s rabid music crowd will really love the band collaboration re-releases we have on tap.”
