We have to admit that February is packed with the hottest sneaker releases that have got us glued on our phones all day long trying to stay in the know of all release info. Whether it's an upcoming restock, high-profile collab, or new silhouette, you have to remain updated or you'll be left behind and that also goes for the anticipated PORTER x Vault by Vans collection landing at select retailers very shortly.
Whether you can skate or not, we have no shadow of a doubt that every sneakerhead has owned a pair of Vans trainers in their collection. Working in partnership for the first time ever with PORTER (Japan's most notorious luggage and accessories label owned by Yoshida & Co.), the renowned Californian footwear legend have touched down in Tokyo to bring forth their most iconic skate models in an all-new makeover.
Fan-favourite silhouettes including the Sk8-Hi, Slip-On, and two classic Old Skool, are all decked out in Yoshida Porter's signature orange tone that descends upon the sock liner, laces, waffle outsole, peelable side stripe, and ankle cuff on the counterparts. The quartet flaunts a combination of premium canvas and suede upper dressed in instantly-recognisable Vans checkboard pattern that we all know and love on the lateral wall and SoCal-inspired floral graphics on the flipside. All, but one Old Skool LX in a stealthy black hue, carries a "Forest Night" colorway that showcases dark olive green accents, finalised with co-branding details on the insoles.
The PORTER x Vault by Vans collection is set to launch at select stores globally this Friday on the 20th of February, followed by a wider drop containing a briefcase, wallet, luggage tags and much more, scheduled to arrive later on this year.
