Leila Hurst’s Playful Vibes Shine Through in Latest Vans Collection

This season, Vans and renowned free surfer Leila Hurst partner once again on a chic lifestyle collection featuring bold, fun colors and an elevated aesthetic.

The Kauai-born surfer has prioritized her goals, focusing on her deep relationship with the ocean and active lifestyle – something that’s highlighted in her latest capsule, which emphasizes all-day, carefree comfort and relaxed, playful vibes.

Key to the collection is the Slip-on SF in Leila Hurst tiny animal colorway. Constructed of a sturdy cotton canvas upper with engineered collapsible kick down heel, this iteration of the Slip-on SF makes it easy to go from beach to street.

Vans LuxLiner Drop-in sockliner provides improved cushioning. The shoe is complete with original waffle outsole and created with water-based inks and glues. 

Leila’s custom tiny animal colorway is found across two other silhouettes in the collection – the UltraRange EXO and Style 36 Decon SF – as well as several unique apparel pieces.

A Leila hoodie in French Terry features a crop blouson fit, all-over print detailing, and embroidered Vans logo at chest. Also in the mix are the Leila Tee – a cotton jersey construction with rolled sleeves and front screen printed logo, and the Leila Ranger Backpack – made of poly satin with all over tiny animal print, ergonomic straps, interior laptop sleeve and organization, front zip pockets, and side water bottle pockets.


Fun-loving and passionate, the Hawaiian soul surfer is incredibly motivated and dedicated to her pursuit of success. Although a part of the Vans Surf team since 2007, Leila is more than just a surfer, volunteering for non-profit organizations like Life Rolls On and acting as a mentor for women everywhere.

The latest Vans collection embodies her captivating spirit and enthusiasm and is now available at local Vans retailers.
