Vans Vault drops a collection of Horween leather sneakers featuring two iconic silhouettes in navy and timber colorways. Sk8 Hi LX and Old Skool Cup LX are probably two of the most recognizable styles to come out of the Vans stable and this collaborative release puts a refined spin on their ‘tried and true’ aesthetic.
Both models feature padded collars and flat woven laces, which are accented nicely with tonal stitching details, and sit atop the standard Vans waffle sole. But obviously, the kicker with these is the leather itself. With top-notch leather from America’s most storied leather tannery, the sneakers are given a luxe interpretation. Normally, the canvas would wear out along with the sole, but we have a feeling the uppers will outlast the tasty waffle sole.
This slick interpretation of two classic sneaker styles can be found online at Need Supply Co. for $175 USD and $150 USD respectively.
