Spring 2016 welcomes a new collaboration from Vans with Montreal-based brand Raised by Wolves as part of the ongoing Vans OTH project with fellow Montreal-based boutique and Vans’ only Canadian partnership store, OFF THE HOOK. With its marriage of different premium materials, this weather-story pack is a representation of rbw and OTH’s Montreal roots and intertwining relationships, fit to brace the precocious elements the Québécois city has to offer.
Suede and leather outfit two black versions of the Sk8-Hi LX and Old Skool Zip LX, with modern applications like the reflective Jazz Stripes along the sides for nighttime visibility. The left foot features a premium leather upper and suede toe box, while the right sports the opposite with a premium suede upper with a leather toe box, with all pairs finished off water-resistant Scotchguard technology, sealed zippers, and gusseted tongues to keep your feet warm and cozy. Vans MTE soles ensure maximum grip in the most slippery of conditions.
The rbw x OTH x Vans pack will be releasing February 27 at 11 a.m. in-store at OFF THE HOOK, as well as OTH online and Raised by Wolves with the Sk8-Hi Zip LX priced at $180 CAD (approximately $130 USD) and the Old Skool Zip LX at $150 CAD (approximately $110 USD).
