Japanese clothing brand nonnative is no stranger to footwear collaborations, having worked with Vans before for two special Vans SK8-His back in January. Now, the pair of collaborative partners are amalgamating again — and they’re bringing their familiar collaborative aesthetic to a new silhouette, the Vans Old Skool. Utilizing the same details from the previous collaboration, the shoe arrives in a pair of luxurious colors — brown and black — both constructed of an extra-shaggy suede. Gone are the laces, both replaced by a silver zipper on the throat with threaded moccasin-style detailing arriving in place of the eyelets. For a finishing touch — and a nod to classic Vans styling — the liner of both shoes is dressed in a classic checkerboard pattern. Look for both of these unique Old Skools to arrive at select Japanese retailers September 22nd, and check back here for updates on a possible stateside release as they’re available.
