Cult Japanese streetwear label WTAPS and California sneaker-maker Vans have a rich history of collaboration. This latest collection represents the brands’ 12th collaboration, offering new premium takes on classic Vans silhouettes. The ‘Bones’ motif has been a reoccurring motif in previous collaborations between the two labels and returns once more for the second drop of this season’s collaboration.
The Classic Slip-On is named so for a reason. The appeal of this beloved shoe has endured since its introduction in 1977. With this collaboration, WTAPS recreate the iconic leisure shoe in line with their vision of premium Japanese streetwear.
The WTAPS x Vans OG Classic Slip-On LX Bones shoe takes the features of the Classic Slip-On as its starting point: a three-piece upper, elasticized gusset at the sides of the tongue, leather lining at the padded collar, the Vans woven flag label at the outer side, a rubber midsole with the Vans ‘Off the Wall’ logo on an embossed panel at the heel, and, of course, the iconic brown waffle outsole. Here in the Black / White colourway, the enhanced detailing of this WTAPS edition includes a premium suede upper, embroidered WTVUA branding at the heel, and a embroidered bones detailing across the midsole.
