Steven Alan quietly released their second collaboration with Vault by Vans this week. The collection consists of all OG silos of the Slip On, Style 36, and Sk8 Hi LX.
All three pairs make use of a cream and black checkerboard pattern printed on a tough cotton twill from the Nihon Menpu textile mill in Japan. For the Slip On, this pattern comprises the vamp and heel counter, while premium suede covers the quarter and collar. Designers decided to place the twill on the quarters of the Style 36 and Sk8 Hi and and use the black suede for the heel counters, vamps, and eyestays. All three pairs sit on a tonal black midsole with black heeltabs, tongue tags, and black leather flag tags. They also arrive in special dual branded packaging.
The Vault by Vans x Steven Alan Nihon Menpu Collection is available now from Steven Alan in very limited numbers for $70-$80.
