26 11 2012 vans era46 bronze Harris Tweed x Vans Vault Old Skool

A favorite for Syndicate collection collabo projects, the first Jazz Striped Off the Wall model joins the premium Vault tier for a dance with the Harris Tweed Authority.  The resulting Harris Tweed x Vans Vault Old Skool is potentially this model’s nicest colorway to date, or to put that vague praise into a more precise focus, the most luxurious build in its 35 years.  Leather wrapping the entire shoe at the sole along with a brogue-is perfed toe and leather laces/brass eyelets all contribute to setting up a rich blue/brown weave whose unfinished take on the familiar houndstooth is available now at select retailers like End.

Harris Tweed, having collaborated with several of the world’s top footwear brands, turns its attention now to the oldest major label out there, offering its woolen weaves to one of the most iconic sneaker designs in history.  About a year after Bape’s Ape Sta utilized some of the same materials, this Harris Tweed x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shows us what the original looks like in a heathered herringbone.  Have a closer look after the jump, tell us whether Converse bested the ‘Bapechecks’ and expect them soon with Japanese retailers already selling theirs.

Beauty & Youth x Vans “Harris Tweed” Pack

beauty and youth x vans harris tweed pack 1 Beauty & Youth x Vans Harris Tweed Pack

The original name for flecked woven Scottish fabrics was intended to be ‘tweel’, but a London merchant who misread the promo materials (a handwritten letter), started selling the stuff as ‘tweed’ after a nearby river.  There’s no such confusion as to who is the world’s leading supplier, though, as The Harris Tweed Authority has stamped their signature orb on some of the world’s finest loomwork since 1911.  They’ve been doing quite a few sneaker collaborations on this side of that century of service, including teamups with brands like Nike Sportswear, Converse, A Bathing Ape, and now a brand who’s done plenty of their own woolen designs in recent years.  The Beauty & Youth x Vans ‘Harris Tweed’ Pack features one pair each of the Authentic and Slip-On lowtops, each offering its own take on asymmetrical placement of the signature herringbones and houndstooths.  These are expected in stores later this month, so be sure to check back with Sneaker News after you’ve had a chance to see them in detail below.

So Converse did a collaboration with Woolworth and the result was . . . sorry, wrong post.  Pictured above is actually A Bathing Ape’s latest release, and it turns out that it’s far more difficult to come up with a new way of saying ‘BAPE copied Converse’ than it is for them to actually do it.  And that’s not a bad thing, either, when the results come out like this black and red BAPE Ape Sta hightop crafted in Harris Tweed.  Click through to see more, let us know what you think about this model in comparison to Converse’s various plaid Chucks and BAPE’s design strategy in general, and stick with Sneaker News for updates on this October 2011 release.  via EK.
