Blends and Vans is one of the most recognizable partnerships in sneaker culture. Ever since the design team at Blends was given permission to alter the jazz stripe, the campouts have been getting longer and longer. All good things must come to an end, though, and Blends and Vans have revealed the final iteration of the Bones stripe, this time in premium pony hair.
Southern-California based boutique, Blends, teams up with Vans Vault once again to release a special “Pony hair” rendition of the original “Bone Jazz-Stripe” Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX. The duo maintain the color palette of the very first Vans Vault x Blends project which features supple premium Black cowhide leather uppers accented with natural-colored Pony Hair details on the tongue lining and the Bone Jazz Stripe that sits atop a solid All-White sole unit with a Black Waffle outsole.
For my take, the Blends models have long been some of my favorite collaborations and I am sorry to see them go. However, I am really pumped for what the future holds for Blends and Vans. The pony hair Bone Stripe is a heck of a way to go out and I can't wait to get my hands on them.
The Vault by Vans x Blends Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip LX "Pony Hair Bone Jazz-Stripe" will be available exclusively at Blends locations in southern California as well as their online shop tomorrow, January 6th. Expect crowds in person and heartache online, but good luck to everyone!
