The first new silhouette to be introduced since the June 2012 debut of the LXVI collection, Vans presents the Stat for Fall/Winter 2012. Furthering the progressive aesthetic that serves as the line’s hallmark, the Stat sees a rich synthetic nubuck upper bonded to a ballistic mesh sidestripe that creates a functional flex point. Lined with the brand’s comfortable LuxLiner technology, the kicks see a WaffleFlex tread design and are cushioned with an UltraCush Lite midsole unit. Appearing in red/gray, charcoal/royal and black/orange colorways, the Stat will also be available in a special edition olive/orange colorway featuring water-repellent All-Weather (AWT) construction, premium Scotchguard-treated Wolverine pig suede, and 1200D ballistic nylon paneling alongside rugged rope boot lacing and heavy-duty metal D-ring grommets. All four builds are due to hit Foot Locker this September before rolling out to additional LXVI accounts in October.
