The Darkside Initiative has teamed up with Vans Vault once again to unveil two new silhouettes: the Old Skool ComfyCush LX and the Sk8-Hi ComfyCush LX. The duo’s previous “Armored” pack included the innovative use of technical fabrics, while this latest partnership experiments with Vans’ groundbreaking ComfyCush sole.

The design was inspired by the rivalry between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers after the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, where Philly fans donned shirts stating “Guess what? We don’t like you either!” in response to Penguin Sydney Crosby’s attitude. Taking cues from the fans’ flippant attitude, The Darkside Initiative embraced the Flyer’s team hues to deliver an orange and black-themed colorway on the tongue and waffle sole, along with the infamous slogan embroidered on the heel. Featuring a matte steerhide leather with combo tanning along the upper, the finish provides a rubbery touch on top of a light grey midsole.

The collection also includes a black slingback with DSPTCH, constructed with ballistic nylon and Duraflex hardware. All items from the collaboration are available now at The Darkside Intiative online and its San Francisco stores, with prices ranging from $130-$175 USD.
