Japanese clothing label WTAPS has collaborated with Vans several times, most often under the umbrella of the Syndicate line. Here’s their first Vans Vault collaboration on the heels of the Off the Wall premium tier’s 10th anniversary, as WTAPS Creative Director Tetsu Nishiyama selects some of his favorite classic models for the ‘OG Classics Collection’. Included are the WTAPS x Vans Vault OG Classic Slip-On LX, OG Classic Chukka LX and OG Classic Sk8-Hi LX are each included in two colorways, inspired by 1980s BMX, WTAPS’ own military style and N-1 naval deck jackets, respectively. Check out the whole set after the jump and get ready for the first WTAPS x Vans Vault collaboration in stores this Thursday, August 8th.
