The Blackouts x Vans OTW Larkin Decon

Vans unveils a new set of sneakers produced alongside OTW crew members The Blackouts, otherwise known as Ako and Atiba Jefferson. Together they deconstructed the Larkin by removing all padding to refine the silhouette, applied premium black materials to upgrade the uppers, and added their logo to the soles to complete their signature shoe. Ako’s version features premium full-grain leather with perforated quarter panel and canvas linings. Atiba’s version features premium canvas upper with binding detail. Pigskin linings in both versions highlight tonal embossed leather, tongue labeling and quality cotton laces. Look for them soon through OTW stockists.
