Continuing its highly sought-after synergetic ways, iconic skate label Vans aligns with Hawaiian sneaker boutique KICKS/HI to produce a limited edition, straight from the Vault, Authentic LX. Inspiration for this collaborative model comes from the attire of the Hawaiian cowboy, also known as the “Paniolo.” When Mexican-Spanish Vaqueros immigrated to the chain of Pacific Islands during the mid-19th century, they brought with them a unique style of dress that befitted rancheros. Combining both past and present influences, the outcome sees cues from traditional cowboy shirting as well as their rugged leather boots and saddles with a two-tone upper combining chambray and premium tanned leather. This release will be available exclusively at KICKS/HI, KICKS/HI Guam and Saint Alfred on August 4.
