We’ve seen a few teasers of the Vans “3 Feet High” Program over the past couple of months, but now it’s time to get a proper introduction. It is a brand new Vans division, with distribution in only 3 boutiques nationwide, which happen to be the 3 brands involved in the program: KICKS/HI, HUF (SF), and DQM (NYC). Each shop will do their own take on classic Vans silhouettes. The first edition of monumental release will occur this Saturday March 17 with the Vans Chukka Boot.
The Vans “3 Feet High: DQM” Chukka consists of a gingham patterned body, 3 lace options, an ingenius play on the famous “off the wall” Vans logo with “off the bone”, gumsole, and leather inner lining. The Vans “3 Feet High: HUF” Chukka features a tongue-in-cheek play on the snakeskin theme with one lace option stating “Even snakes are afraid of snakes.” Features also include a black leather snakeskin body, a lime green lace option, imprinted HUF lettering on the heel, and all white midsole/sole makes for an all around heater. The Vans “3 Feet High: KICKS/HI” Chukka is definitely the most colorful shoe of the bunch with lime green, grass green and shop orange. It also utilizes the most materials with a perforated leather toe, suede side panels, faux croc heel, and leather lining.
If you make it out the release this Saturday March 17, a “3 Feet High” tee will be available in either white or black with the “3″ front and center filled with the logos of KICKS/HI, HUF, and DQM. Images after the jump!
