01. A tough choice.

Words

Vans and Wtaps have been working together for almost a decade and today marks the release of their latest collaborative collection. The eight-piece offering for Fall-Winter '15, produced as part of the footwear brand's Vault line, features two Caballero-inspired versions of the Sk8-Hi and a trio of Era options, influenced by the Japanese school uniform and colour-coded grading system. The highlight, however, is a tonal edition of the low cut Style 36 silhouette, built on a vulcanised rubber sole and rendered in three appealing shades of premium suede.

Words

Tomorrow in Montreal’s Plateau neighbourhood Dime will open a pop-up shop in collaboration with Vans to celebrate the release of their Slip-On Pro model. It's the first time the two brands have worked together, and Dime's first foray into footwear. Featuring UltraCush HD Cushioning, Pro Vulc Lite construction and DURACAP reinforcements, the shoe itself is made for performance, but its pared-back aesthetic is sure to be a success on and off the grip tape.

—01. OG Slip-On LX & OG Authentic LX.

Words

Yesterday marked the release of Engineered Garments' collaboration with Vault by Vans. The New York based brand made two different models, the OG Authentic LX and the OG Slip-On LX, each taking on their own aesthetic. The capsule collection is likely to sell quickly, as the shoes are well-priced, very wearable and represent the first collaboration between the two brands.
