Japanese brand FDMTL teams up with Vans in a very special 10-year anniversary collaborative effort. Using Japanese traditional aesthetics in patchwork production, FDMTL overlays the entire silhouette of both the Slip-On and Era models with Okayama-sourced indigo blue fabrics, with a subtle contrast in yarn and embroidery choices. Custom outer tag and insoles add a nice touch that complement a box specifically created for the project. While only currently available for pre-order within Japan, check your local Vans dealers for a possible availability stateside in the near future.
