It’s been several months since there were any updates regarding UNDERCOVER‘s collaboration with Vault by Vans. Fortunately for Jun Takahashi fans the full offering of footwear has finally been unveiled. For Spring 2017 the Japanese label has reworked both the OG Era LX and the OG Old Skool LX silhouettes, the latter of which is arguably the standout silhouette. Arriving in two colorways of grey and bordeaux, the classic low-top boasts tonal color treatments and an all-over floral pattern, an ever-present theme in Takahashi’s past collections. The Era on the other hand features a relatively simple text-focused design along the toe box reading “Take me in time, time to the music, Take me away to the twilight zone,” which refers to the English rock band Temple’s 2014 single “Shelter Song.” This model is available in colorways of white (not pictured above), black and red. Retailing between $130 USD and $150 USD, you can purchase the UNDERCOVER x Vault by Vans collection at select accounts starting February 4.
Let us know how you think this release compares to Vans’s collaboration with NEIGHBORHOOD.
