This new pack for the holidays suggests it’s now an annual tradition we’ll be happy to celebrate as the first Knoll Textiles x Vans OTW capsule arrives at retailers this month. Featuring similar windowpane accents on the Knoll x Vans OTW Alcon, Ludlow and Piercy, each demonstrates how different (ranges of) color(s) work with each base shade. Let us know which is your favorite after you’ve seen each individually below and stick with Sneaker News for all your Vans release info.

Nike Sportswear has had some memorable collaborations in recent years with companies like Maharam and Liberty of London that are world renown for their signature fabrics, and now here’s something similar with an Off the Wall twist. The Knoll Textiles x Vans Vault Buffalo Boot is now the third collaboration between the world’s top skate brand and the workplace furnisher, these new drops utilzing a similar material blocking pattern we’d seen on earlier releases. It’s all about texture with these, perforated suede giving way to a grainy material that resembles waxed canvas allowing for some nice tonal depth on the navy and grey designs. You can see both pairs after the jump and be on the lookout for these at top-tier Vans retailers next month. via FNG
