Ray Barbee Leica Vans Capturing The Journey Collection

This holiday season, Vans introduces the Vault by Vans x Ray Barbee “Capturing the Journey” collection that celebrates creativity by putting Vans’ signature skate twist in collaboration with the sophisticated photography brand, Leica Camera AG.

This collection includes footwear, apparel, and a Vans Leica camera.

The OG Authentic LX, and each silhouette Ray collaborated on, has a special quote from him embroidered on the left shoe that reads “The joy is in capturing the journey.” As a nod to the camera he loves, the right shoe has a quote in German by Ernst Leitz “Ich entscheide hiermit: es wird riskiert,” (“I herby decide: the risk shall be taken”) which marked the go-ahead for the production of the first Leica I camera in 1924. Printed, raised red dots on the sole and red top eyelets and lace aglets are a shout out to the minimalist iconic Leica logo.

Other footwear styles include the OG Slip-On LX, the OG Old Skool LX and the OG SK8-Hi LX.

Vans, Ray Barbee and Leica – have teamed up to introduce the limited-edition Leica D-Lux 7 Vans x Ray Barbee: an extraordinary camera covered in Vans’ iconic checkerboard pattern. The top plate of the camera features Ray Barbee’s signature, as well as the Vault by Vans logo. The set includes a specially designed carrier strap and matching dust bag, both in petrol blue.
