What happens when 2 dope brands join forces to create a limited edition piece? A cult object which is also one of the coolest bindings out there.

This winter, Vans celebrates 20 years of presence on the snow field, and it’s fair to say that in 20 years, the brand from California have created some of the sickest pieces of snow equipment ever made. From their boot line, to outerwear or different collabs along the way, Vans stands for style and function. And to come up with this collab, which is their latest, and the first with Union bindings – who also made a lot of sick collab products with many brands and media, including us – Vans used its most iconic visual elements, and Union decided to make it very unique by mixing the different pieces and taking the best of their different models to build this bad boy. This is how Union and Vans explain the project:

This binding collaboration is all about paying respect towards the amazing heritage and timeless style of the Vans brand. With 20 solid years in the snowboard boot game, it is a pleasure and honor to build this super limited-edition model.
