Vault by Vans in partnership with WTAPS, one of Vans’ most coveted design collaborators, are back to release their 15th collaboration. The new collection features two drops with the first focused on Vans’ timeless footwear and apparel styles influenced by WTAPS’ utilitarian sensibility. For the second drop, WTAPS brings their design perspective to reinterpret Vans’ snowboard boot and All-Weather MTE silhouettes.
The first drop draws on the WTAPS bones motif, a signature of past Vault by Vans collaborations. All four of the OG Vault by Vans footwear styles feature custom WTAPS woven flags, but each have their own distinct vision.
For the OG Chukka LX and the OG Era LX, the iconic bones pattern is embroidered across the upper. As a nod to the outdoors and military-inspired gear, all the uppers on the footwear feature the coyote colorway. The OG Old Skool LX features a printed WTAPS logo on the heel counter, while medial custom WTAPS Half Cab labels appear on the OG Half Cab LX, each are complimented with a tonal dark gray outsole.
The mid-top skate silhouette joins the ranks of special colorways and limited designs to honor the 30th anniversary of the Half Cab. Drop one will also deliver a delivery of short sleeve tees in heavyweight jersey cotton with custom back graphic and woven label as well as crew socks each offered in black and smokey olive colorways.
