VAINL ARCHIVE has teamed up with Vans for the release of a Japan-exclusive Authentic. The Japanese imprint has captured its collaborative pair in an action-packed lookbook, which sees the shoes worn to skate around town.

VAINL ARCHIVE is helmed by industry stalwart Kouhei Ohkita and has previously collaborated with the likes of Reebok and KEEN. For this collaboration, the Japanese label has given the Vans Authentic a washed black denim upper with black leather trim around the tongue and collar.

On the rear, we find a checkerboard print wrapped around the heel cup that is continued inside the shoe to contrast against its blue lining. Black laces and a black Vans tab round off the limited-edition pair. The first drop of VAINL ARCHIVE x Vans Authentic is on August 3 at BILLY’S TOKYO, BEAUTY & YOUTH Shibuya Koen-dori and H BEAUTY & YOUTH for ¥14,000 JPY (approx. $128 USD). They will have a second drop via VAINL ARCHIVE stockists on August 10.
