Vans California Chukka “Guate”

Sneaker packs and other nicknames offer a helpful way of remembering our favorite releases, but there are a select few instances when the nomenclature just adds to the confusion.  Somewhere in the middle is a release like Vans California’s latest, a model whose name does indeed describe its construction, but was also used earlier this year on another style.  And to add to the confusion the Vans California Chukka ’Guate’ utilizes a different pattern altogether from June’s ‘Guate Stripe’ Authentic release, though both do indeed accurately reflect the look of traditional South American loomworks.  This one’s on tap for a fourth quarter release and you can see more after the jump below; how do they compare to the impressive range of patterned styles we’ve seen from Off the Wall this year (or last year’s ‘Nordic’ Chukka CA, for that matter)?

Sneakerheads have long recognized Tokyo as one of the world’s key centers of influence, and now this new trio from the brand most singularly associated with California, USA shines light on a couple of other Japanese cities as well.  The Vans “City Pack” brings together four-colored corduroy looks on the Vans Slip-On (Sendai), Era (Hakata) and Chukka Boot (Tokyo), each blocked in a similar asymmetrical style.  Each pair’s insoles and box note their city along with the Vans’ classic ‘Red Tab’-ish fabric tags, and you can see them all after the jump below (which might be the only time, given the limited overseas availability).

supreme x vans fall 2012 Supreme x Vans   Fall 2012 Collection

It turns out Supreme has been even busier than we thought as far as current collabs go, their pending Nike Air Force 1 release being joined by this, a new set of Vans releases including four pairs of the Vans Chukka and four more of the Vans Old Skool. Each sneaker features a similar suede upper with some metallic touches along the side swipe and back tabs, a theme that almost looks like a reprisal of their approach with the Bruin a few years back. Hit the jump for a full look at the Supreme x Vans ‘Metallic Pack’ and keep in mind that the collection will drop at the NY, LA, London, and online shops on September 13th and the London spot on the 15th.

Longtime Vans collaborator Taka Hayashi has a few new tricks up his sleeves for fall, the first of which is a unique twist on an established Off the Wall favorite.  The Vans Vault Chukka LX TH applies the Japanese designer’s premium handcrafted feel to th familiar midtop Chukka Boot silhouette, adding (what looks to be) an asymmetrical leather mudguard and heel, while swapping out the iconic Waffle sole for a lower profile base like the ones he used on his own Akat.  Monochromatic styles in black, brown and blue are available now at Vans Vault retailers, so click through for more and let us know which pair(s) you’ll pick up.  via FNG

Vans has been offering chukka-style sneakers for longer than anyone else, and even with all the boat shoe hybrids and other variations, we’ve never seen one as sleek and sophisticated as the new style pictured above.  The Vans Vault Chukka Bardenas LX debuted in late 2011 with a sleeker take on the classic desert boot silhouette, their lower profile, contoured midsoles proving that you can have your classic Vans waffle sole and eat (away from) it too.  Three new tumbled leather pairs will hit retailers this May, so click on the jump below to see each of them individually and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via FNG

VANS WTAPS GROUP WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Burgundy Bones Pack   Release Info

Perhaps more than any other collaborator, Japanese streetwear label WTAPS has become the face of the Vans Syndicate collection.  This partnership has produced quite a few drops over the years, ranging from fresh WTAPS-authored designs to deluxe takes on the classic Off the Wall catalog.  The latest belongs firmly in the later category, this three pack of WTAPS x Vans Syndicate ‘Burgundy Bones’releases reprising both a trio of foundational silhouettes and the theme we’ve seen these two use more often than any other.  White crossbones embroidered into rich red canvas add tonal suede toes and heels for a lush and warm holiday look, and they’re available in-store only starting Friday, December 9th at Primitive.

It’s an undeniable fact in today’s sneaker scene that a vast majority of new innovations are driven by Nike, Inc., even when compared to the remainder of other brands combined.  The company James Van Doren founded in 1966 can lay a similar claim to the skateboarding market in particular, and Vans has even beaten the Swoosh to the punch when it comes to providing support to North America’s aboriginal communities.  As a part of Nibwaakaawin‘s 5th Annual Chicago Powwow, a set of Pendleton x Vans collaborative designs will be offered so that proceeds can benefit the organization’s goal of “keep[ing] our Native youth on the red road and in the skate parks.”  Check out the whole set after the jump and let us know if you plan to attend the November 18-20th event.
