Update: Vans delivered official imagery of its latest WTAPS collab. Read on below.
Longtime co-conspirators Vans Vault and WTAPS are set to reunite for a new collection of elevated skate shoes and matching apparel. Though the favorite ”bones” imagery doesn’t appear, the range does offer a new selection of bold patterns, including two pairs of a blacked-out Sk8-Hi LX embroidered with orange or blue-hued flames on either side. Not to mention, the Half Cab LX is done up in a gray digital camouflage print.
Meanwhile, a duo of Era LX models sport similar muted detailing, with black midsoles and matching or navy suede on the forefoot and heel paneling. This low-key detailing is undermined by gold eyelets and bold crocodile-patterned leather, complemented by matching laces. Two Old Skool LX pairs round out the footwear portion, with no patterns to interrupt the blend of green or navy canvas and suede detailing, accompanied by conventional white Jazz Stripes and midsoles.
Lastly, the 13-piece capsule includes a selection of tops — a Torrey jacket, a hoodie and a number of long-sleeve tees — and a durable duffel bag. The entire collection ranges from $58 to $178 USD.
