Although they were hyped as a East vs. West showdown between Vans loving brands and boutiques, the grey/gold pair we saw yesterday have yet to be co-branded. The pair pictured above is another story, clearly reppin’ the east coast. The 5Boro x Vans Forty-Four Hi is obviously inspired by the NY boutique and its namesakes. Done in black suede with pink accents, the side panels reveal the 5Boro logo, while the individual sections of New York are printed on the tongue and laces. Topping them off are leather Vans stripes and a pigeon on the outer mudguard. These are available now at select Vans retailers including CCS.
