Vault by Vans has definitely built out its range of collaborations with a hefty amount of partners in recent years, but few have the history and heritage of its relationship with BLENDS. The Southern California-based streetwear and sneakers boutique has joined forces with the Anaheim sub-label on a variety of different footwear initiatives, and now they’re adding one more entry to their catalog: the “Unreleased Pack.”
The duo has dug into their archives to highlight the Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX VLT and Old Skool LX VLT — two silhouettes that were once left as samples. Both iterations are designed with elements that are signature to the BLENDS x Vault by Vans partnership but also usher in subtle modifications. Both iterations are constructed with a solid black leather build and come fitted with white, bone-shaped jazz stripes on the side panels. To give the kicks a refreshing look, BLENDS has reworked the midsoles with stark black bumpers.
You can check out BLENDS’ lookbook for the shoes here above, and note that the pairs will be released via the BLENDS online store on March 12.
