This summer, Vault by Vans reunites with premium Japanese menswear label, WTAPS, to present a 13-piece premium footwear, apparel and accessories collection, honoring master Japanese craftsmanship with Vans’ iconic design aesthetic.
The latest Vans WTAPS collection is the perfect balance between traditional and new-age style, combining four of Vans most iconic footwear silhouettes with brand new graphic designs. WTAPS ingenuity is embodied through the OG Sk8-Hi LX, one of Vans’ most popular styles, embellished with bold orange and blue flame accents along the quarter panels, and finished with all black laces. Vans x WTAPS also reimagines the OG Half Cab LX in a gray digital camouflage print, the OG Old Skool in two colorways, blue and green, as well as the Classic Era LX silhouette in a crocodile-textured quarter panel and a solid black and navy toecap.
The Fall 2018 Vans WTAPS collaboration introduces five unique apparel pieces, as well as an olive green skate duffle bag. The apparel set includes a digital camouflage long sleeve T-shirt with the phrase “waffle lovers club” in vintage type on the back, a navy Fleece Hoodie, a black long sleeve T-shirt with flame details on the sleeve in two colorways, and an army green Torrey jacket with flannel lining and patch details.
In line with the WTAPS philosophy, the Vans WTAPS collection embraces every part of the design process to create a finely-crafted assembly of products that epitomizes material craftsmanship and a classic aesthetic, and reinforces Vans and WTAPS as the iconic brands that they are.
