Lighter, more flexible, incredibly comfortable – three key details that mark the all-new Vans LXVI. Without messing around with the heritage of the brand, Vans has created the Vans LXVI Collection using contemporary build methods while maintaining the classic brand statement as the creator action sports footwear. Sneaker News teased you with the mysterious Vans LXVI package, tightly locked with a combination lock that was revealed today. Inside the impressive packaging is the all-new Vans LXVI Variable in Black and Light Blue, but the entire collection features a quintet of new designs that combine old-school Skate design with modern appeal.
What separates the LXVI from its original capsule is the use of advanced construction methods and materials, like LuxLiner, which improves comfort by way of increased airflow and fit, WaffleFlex tread design, UltraCush Lite midsole, a sturdy heel counter and support fortified by ActionFit and PleasureCuff, and the RapidWeld no-sew upper, which reduces weight while maintain flexion. The entire Vans LXVI Collection will be available at Vans retailers worldwide and at Foot Locker locations tomorrow, so check out the detailed shots of this amazing package as well as the debut video of LXVI and step into the next generation of Vans footwear by checking out the Vans LXVI Collection in stores!
