Longtime co-conspirators Vans and WTAPS are set to reunite for a new collection of elevated skate shoes. Though the infamous “bones” imagery doesn’t appear, the range does offer a new selection of bold patterns, including a pair of blacked-out Sk8-Hi LX emblazoned with bold orange or blue-hued flames embroidered on either side.Meanwhile, a duo of Era LX 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 round out the drop, with no patterns to interrupt the blend of green or navy canvas and suede detailing, accompanied by conventional white Jazz Stripes and midsoles.
Look for the new collaboration to hit Overkill’s web store on July 28 at midnight.
Most recently, Vans introduced a patchworked iteration of its Highland Construct.
