The first occasion that UNDEFEATED and Vans first teamed up was back in 2007 where both parties launched a special Sk8-Hi capsule that highlighted Geoff McFetridge’s “U-Man” insignia. The logo became a staple of the streetwear brand and was originally created around the time that UNDEFEATED opened its LA-based flagship on La Brea in 2002. Fast forward 15 years later from its original team-up the two giants are bringing new life to the “U-Man” icon by lending it to a trio of Vault by Vans OG Old Skool LX colorways.
The construction of each shoe is fashioned with a canvas-infused base and smooth suede overlays, and all three takes paste the aforementioned logo in all-over fashion against the lateral and medial walls. Three colorways including “Bistro Green,” “Blue Lolite” and “Buckthorn Brown” are included in this two-way collection, all of which use its primary hue to cover the base and suede panels while the jazz stripes deviate with a slightly lighter shade. Laces provide more contrasting as they are treated with white while the interior lining and midsoles appear with a creamy outer.
Take a closer look at each variation here above and note that they’ll be dropping on December 4 on UNDEFEATED’s site and in its global chapter stores.
