vans half cab pro charcoal burgundy Vans Half Cab Pro   Charcoal   Burgundy

Continuing on the momentum built from last year’s 20th anniversary celebration, the legendary Vans Half Cab arrives in a new colorway for spring.  Featuring the time-tested suede construction that both looks and performs so well for skating, this charcoal Half Cab adds burgundy branding and lining as well as a black tongue for a look that’s familiar  but keeps itself just outside the traditional Chicago Bulls umbrella.  With the original Caballero having been inspired by appropriated b-ball kicks like the Air Jordan 1, the subtle connection is a natural fit, and you can find them available now at shops like CNCPTS.

The just-wrapped Agenda Long Beach tradeshow gave us a look into the future of skateboarding sneakers.  It was at a different show on the other side of the world half a year ago that we got our first look at this new colorway on the iconic Vans Half Cab, a veteran with the kind of longevity for which most new skate shoes could only dream.  And even with two decades plus under its belt, the Half Cab looks fresh with a black suede-accented four-color camo design.  You’ll want to check around with your favorite retailers on these, because all except a few smaller sizes sold out super fast at Vans.

sneakernews top 30 2012 1a Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

Vans Classics Half Cab Pro – Holiday 2012 Colorways

vans half cab pro holiday 2012 releases Vans Classics Half Cab Pro   Holiday 2012 Colorways

Some of the sneaker world’s most respected silhouettes have celebrated significant anniversaries in 2012, but only one of them was born and bred as a part of the ascension of skateboarding.  The Vans Half Cab is a pillar in the skate community, a must-have classic whose vulc-soled midtop take on ’80s basketball hightops whose legacy suggests a Fiskars collaboration would be a perfect way to end the 20th birthday party with a bang.  But instead of a guest designer or other frills, these latest drops from the Vans Core division stick with simple colorways, the standout of which is going to sell out in a matter of minutes in every shop from Sausalito to San Jose.  Let us know if that SF Giants colorup has world champion swag or if you prefer one of the black styles depicted below and find yours today at select Off the Wall retailers.

Artist isn’t exactly the most practical job out there, so even though the Vans Half Cab is in the midst of an extended collaboration in honor of the model’s 20th anniversary, it’s still up to Off the Wall themselves to ready for winter.  Pending cold weather welcomes this new duo of Half Cabs with plaid underlays that confer a sense of warmth to red and black suede builds.  They’re joined by Era lowtops with flannel tongues and sockliners in the same color/pattern combos, so have a closer look at the different flannels and how they match their respective suedes in more photos below, then find this pack available today at retailers like Eastbay.

Vans has given more attention to the Half Cab’s first score than any other anniversary on record (the original Caballero hightop’s XX release was a mere blip, comparably), issuing Artist Series releases each month in honor of Steve Caballero’s scissor skills.  The latest Vans Half Cab doesn’t appear to have any evidence of a team effort, though its white contrast-stitched black suede plus leopard fur underlay ends up referencing many other designers who’ve utilized these trends in 2012.  Let us know how these compare to earlier releases and the A.skate auction models and stick with Sneaker News for release info on this November drop.
