Sneakers are having a major moment this season, and if you’ve been looking for a reason to jump on the bandwagon, Vans’ latest collaboration collection is here to offer up some killer kicks that won’t have you feeling buyer’s remorse. The classic American footwear brand has teamed up with Los Angeles-based brand Della to create a socially-responsible capsule line of sneakers and matching accessories. You see, Della does more than produce eye-catching prints and patterns; the brand is known for employing women in developing villages in Ghana and using sustainable textiles found in the West African region. Vans’ collaboration collection, which includes one-of-a-kind takes on each of the brand’s classic shoe silhouettes, donates a large portion of the proceeds to provide more jobs, as well as literacy training and healthcare benefits for women in need and their families.
