Since 1868, Swiss textile manufacturer Schoeller has been on the cutting edge of textile innovation. Their products have long been praised as best in industry and are used by companies like Hugo Boss, Porsche, BMW, Under Armour, The North Face and have countless other applications industries across the globe. Their novel designs and products will now join the Vans family through a limited collaboration with the Vault by Vans line.
The pairing of the original active-wear brand and the most innovative performance textile brand is a no-brainer. Taking the classic silos of Vans and adding the high-tech materials from Schoeller, the two have come up with a 7-piece collection of Authentic '66 Lite LX and Mid Skool Lite LX. All seven pairs will feature Schoeller’s elastic wind and water repellent soft shell fabric uppers, which utilizes distinct bonded layers that ensure maximum functionality and all-day comfort. The Actionfit and UltraCush Lite construction of the Lite line from Vans offers up increased comfort and weight-reduction while maintaining the timeless shape and lasts we expect from Vans.
The Authentic '66 Lite LX will be available in olive, royal, pink, off-white, and hyper greenish/yellow while the Mid Skool Lite will arrive in the more traditional black/white and blue/white blocking.
