Last year, Vans introduced the Lite technology to Classic silhouettes and also brought the materials to an Authentic with the help of KICKS/HI in their Mynah Bird collaboration. Now, the brains behind the Lite moniker are bringing the materials to the Vault line in the way of three new models: the Authentic, Old Skool, and Sk8 Hi LX Lite.
Vans pairs their proprietary CMEVA-bases Ultracush Lite cushioning system for footbed and outsole with premium leather uppers to recreate the normal look of a Vault but with a far more comfortable and lighter feel.
With this first drop, we get two colorways each of the Old Skool LX Lite and Sk8 Hi LX Lite: white/black and gray/white. For the three pairs of Authentic LX Lites, the brand decided to go the monotone route and give us all black, gray, and white pairs with matching mids. Leather tongue tags, sockliners, and Vans flag tags finish off each pair.
