In the two and a half years since the most recent Carhartt x Vans collabo kicks were first previewed, and in that period, we’ve seen the major brands dole out all manner of work boot and otherwise rugged designs. One such theme that’s become increasingly popular of late is camouflage, and with the popularity of print patterns still yet to hit its peak, this new Carhartt x Vans Old Skool is well placed to bring things full circle. A Rorschach of a four-color camo print meets up with Red Wing inspiration on the rich leather toe and eyestay, along with the Detroit brand’s familiar two-toned corded boot laces. Everything about this design speaks of time-tested Americana with a little extra aggression, so be sure to check back with Sneaker News for US release info.
