2012’s been quite the important milestone year for a number of footwear brands. While the Air Force 1 continues its XXX-rated party, the Vans Half Cab – a staple in skate for two decades – celebrates its own milestone, and does so by collaborating with Primitive Shoes of California. Dubbed the ‘Cable Knit’, these Half Cabs are constructed of rich pig suede with the cable knit detailing on the collar and tongue, finished off with a gunmetal plaque on the upper. The Primitive Shoes x Vans Half Cab ‘Cable Knit’ and the accompanying beanie hat will release this Sunday online and in-store at Primitive Shoes, so check out the extra images below (paired with some eye candy in the form of Shay Maria) and let us know what you think about this sick Vans collaboration.
