Fusing comfort-driven design with classic Vans aesthetics, Vans LXVI looks to promote a modern, action sports-inspired collection. Their camouflage-laden pack for Spring/Summer 2013 sees the brand partnering with MultiCam for predominately green camo versions of the Graph, Secant, Numeral, Variable and Stat. LXVI’s proprietary fit features a higher heel height to mimic the fit of running shoes, while maintaining a balanced feel. This allows for more heel cushioning and also puts the user onto the ball of the foot which gives a much more “lively” feel to the shoe. Additionally, the progressive upper panel construction replaces the need for conventional stitching – utilizing a thin film between panels that fuses them together when pressed and heated. This creates an extremely strong bond between the panels – which in turn is more durable, lighter and more flexible than conventional stitching. Expect to see the Vans LXVI MultiCam pack at select accounts starting in April.
