For the Concepts and Vans Old Skool collaboration, the brands take their inspirational cues from ’70s-era 42nd Street in New York City. The pairing’s “Forty Deuce” collection delivers a “bleached black denim and cracked leather” take on the iconic Old Skool silhouette, citing influences related to the aesthetic of Times Square during its grittiest and grimiest periods. To go with the shoe at the center of the collaborative efforts, Vans and Concepts have also cooked up a new array of hoodies and T-shirts.
You can check out Concepts and Vans Old Skool’s collaborative “Forty Deuce” collection above. The Old Skool will retail for $95 USD and is set to hit Concepts’ New York and Cambridge locations and the company’s official website on Friday, April 13.
Earlier this week, Vans also introduced the “Flame Wall” collection.
