To commemorate their 25th anniversary, Italy street wear distributors and designers Slam Jam are creating 25 different projects. To this end, they have teamed with Vans Vault to create three new colorways of the Slip On, Old Skool, and Sk8 Hi LX.<
The brightest of the pack, the Slip On LX, takes the rainbow color design on it's entire upper and sits that atop a white stripeless midsole. The Old Skool and Sk8 Hi LX both make use of the popular 'dove' colorway in canvas and suede for their uppers. The Old Skool's stripeless foxing in awash with the bright ROYGBIV palette that really breaks up the tonal upper. The Sk8 Hi LX is the most toned down pair with only its sockliner colored in the rainbow pattern. All three will feature a special waffle outsole designed to graphically represent the shape of the underfoot in a style reminiscent to basic heat map diagrams.
The Slam Jam x Vans Vault 25th Anniversary Collection launches June 11th online at SlamJamSocialism.com at 1:00AM local time in Italy (June 10th, 9EST/6PDT in the US). Slam Jam will also be holding a special event in Milan with pairs on hand for sale.
