Columbus, Ohio’s Sole Classics gave us a good look at their Vans Vault Era “Carmen” with a video preview last week. Today we see a yarn spun that brings together the Buckeye State’s passion for football, their 1996 license plate design and a mysterious high school legend. The symbolism is deep here, including everything from the pebbled football leather heel tab to the removed Wikipedia entry for Jack ‘Ice’ Henderson. Sole Classics takes a simple classic and lovingly applies layers of detail in tribute to its home state, where these will be released this Saturday, May 25th with an online drop to follow that evening.
