Vans Injects Fresh Energy Into the Knu Skool With the Knu Stack

An elevated take on a fan favorite pulled from Vans’ archive.

Vans Knu Stack is an elevated version of the Knu Skool — literally. The silhouette is rooted in the Vans Knu Skool — a refresh of the classic Old Skool silhouette.

This season, Vans is proud to debut the latest update to its Knu Skool silhouette, the Knu Stack, delivering a fresh, elevated look inspired by a fan favorite style pulled from the archives.

This modern interpretation of a ‘90s low top is designed with a puffed-up tongue and ankle collar, sturdy suede uppers, signature rubber waffle outsoles and a re-envisioned diamond beveled Sidestripe™.

With a chunky, oversized look and feel reminiscent of iconic skate shoes from decades past, the Knu Skool silhouette features an exaggerated look that plays off the original Old Skool with the addition of heel pulls, offering easy in and out access.
