Vault By Vans Launching Dobale ‘Forever Sunny in Ikoyi’ Collection

Dobale Vault by Vans Forever Sunny in Ikoyi Collection Release Date Info

Vault by Vans welcomes Nigeran-American artist Ade Okuboyejo to the family with a new collaboration inspired by Ade’s childhood growing up in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The “Forever Sunny in Ikoyi” collection pays homage to Ade’s happy childhood growing up in Ikoyi, Lagos. From outdoor activities like playing soccer to bonding with family over local foods, the remembrance of a time with no worldly responsibilities is one of Ade’s fondest memories.

The color palette is derived from the sunny disposition of his home country, along with colors inspired by the rich foods, surrounding land, and the Lagos State Flag. Leading the footwear assortment is the Bold NI that features a tri-tone makeup using vintage suede, pigskin, and 10 oz. drill canvas uppers and is finished with a custom sidewall print along with a green Vault by Vans heel scab.

The Vans Slip-On VLT LX showcases a black pig suede upper that is decorated with colorful suede binding details along with a hand-drawn sun graphic

Completing the three-piece footwear lineup is the Vans Era VLT LX that includes a custom printed canvas upper inspired by a customary Yorùbá dish, Efo that is made with vegetables and rich spices.

You can expect the Dobale x Vault by Vans ‘Forever Sunny in Ikoyi’ Collection to release at select Vault by Vans retailers on February 19th. Below, you can check out more photos that will give you a closer look.
