While camouflage has seen its fair share of the fashion spotlight over the past few years — having been used across everything from shirts and pants to accessories and shoes — Flecktarn camouflage is one of the lesser-tapped motifs. Said to be designed around the 1930s, the disruptive pattern was originally developed for use in woodland terrain and is traditionally seen in a mixture of three- to six-color iterations. Laying claim to the iconic camo, Carhartt has once again aligned with Vans for a special Fall 2012 Old Skool option.

The pair dons the outdoor aesthetic quite well with the majority of the classic silhouette generously enveloped in the green, brown and black. While the disruptive pattern traces its way into the interior across the shoe’s footbed, hits of rich brown leather across the toecap panel and along the lace vamp are a welcome delineation that effectively breaks apart the shoe’s layers. Metal eyelets, a supple corduroy tongue, and threaded boot laces augment the aesthetic and provide a nice completion to the Old Skool. Those in the market can find availability at select global stockists including the locations throughout Hong Kong beginning August 31. Retail can be expected to be within the range of $1,000 HKD (approximately $130 USD).
