Vans originally foreshadowed an upcoming heavyweight collaboration back in July, involving one of America’s greatest ongoing domestic stories. Horween and its tanned leathers have become one of the country’s most prominent links to the past, keeping fresh in the minds of consumers the importance of quality and heritage. As the two American brands join forces, an outcome comes to the forefront with the Vans Vault Piragua Horween LX Boat Shoe. A sneaker approach to a deckside staple, an understated contrast brought forth by the usage of different grains of leather reinforces a certain timeless aesthetic that has accompanied both storied brands over the years. Look for the shoe to hit select retailers globally as a Vans Vault release.
