    I wonder if this is legit seeing as how many fakes were on ebay when the 4/4S version came out. The price is also much higher than what Vans would charge and the case isn't on their site just yet either.

    They make one for the 5 now? Sweet!!! Good looking out!

    ----------

    Hmmmmm. Did Vans ever make the bumpers for the 4 a different color other than white? I can't quite recall. He has other variations in this case in his other items for sale.

    I'm extremely confident of the legitimacy. They will be appearing in other outlets shortly.

    They sure did.

    Thank you! :)

    There are definitely some counterfeit ones already at the wholesale level, though these sport a single-colour camera cutout (usually white) whereas the official ones were later revised with a black surrounding.

    Sorry OP, but Vans have not release any cases for the iPhone 5!

    You paid way to much for a Vans replica case! That thing cost around $5 and thats not whole sale prices!

    I would be very wary about this at this point. I have one of the originals from Vans for the iphone 4/4s. As far as I know, they are not making one for the iphone 5 yet. But I guess the best thing to do is contact them directly. See what they say. Please let us know when you hear back.

    Soo... if they're responding with "no word yet" and "we're sure to announce it here if we do", everything out there is fake then...

    counterfit

    I work at Vans and can tell you these iP5 cases are 100% counterfit and unofficial. Beware :(

    no, not so much.

    yeah, vans has not made one for the ip5...i emailed them awhile back and they basically said they don't know if they're going to make one. they need to though! plus, go to vans.com, they're not on the site.
