Commemorating the brand’s 1966 birthdate, the Vans LXVI collection was established this summer as a tech-oriented answer to some of Off the Wall’s best-loved classics. Following up on that FA12 debut is the Holiday 2012 collection featuring new colorways for each style plus a new winter-ready boot design. The Vans LXVI Module is described as “An authentic hiker from the action sport original,” a fairly poetic tagline that refers to both the boot’s plimsoll-ish toe and the fact that brave dudes were climbing mountains thousands of years before the Roller Derbys, Powells and Alien Workshops of the world redefined ‘extreme’. They’re joined by new colorups for the Graph, Inscribe, Ortho, Secant and Variable, and all are both depicted below in additional images and available now straight from Vans.
