With a similar outlook when it comes to quality craftsmanship, this latest collaboration between VANS and WTAPS is another example of a perfect combination of heritage and style. This six-piece set celebrates the anniversary year of the Vault by Vans collection.
Following the WTAPS mantra of placing things where they should be, this minimally-branded collection serves as a stark contrast to the earlier renditions in previous collections. Stylish, earthy tones prevail, but the OG CLASSIC SLIP-ON LX throws a curveball and provides some ’80s BMX-inspired livery to brighten things up.
But whilst that anomaly harbours its own appeal, the other models in the series follow the deluxe and rich aesthetic we’ve come to expect from WTAPS head honcho Tetsu Nishiyama. High-end suede and canvas provides the majority of the construction, taking influence from military apparel and footwear and directly referencing specific items, such as the N-1 naval deck jacket.
The pack features three iconic models – the OG CLASSIC SLIP-ON LX, the OG CHUKKA LX and the OG SK8-HI LX – each available in two colourways. The WTAPS labeling adds the perfect finishing touch to another sureshot from the Vans Vault series which are scheduled to drop at 00:00hrs BST on 17.8.13 and as always, we’ve got you covered via the link-through below.
