To celebrate 15 years in the industry, the crew over at Wood Wood has spent the year doing 15 different collaborative efforts. The Danish brand is ending its campaign with a special collection of two OG Old Skool LXs in partnership with Vault.
Both Old Skools make use of solid color blocking to juxtapose blacks and grays against white. Most details of the Old Skool, like the famous jazz stripe, has been deleted in favor of stitched shapes. The Old Skools will arrive in both both black/white and white/grey canvas and suede combinations.
The mid and outsoles also has special attention paid to them by the design team at Wood Wood. Each mid has black and white additions and gum details which is a nice departure from the all-black or all-white that we are used to. One of the more stand-out design choices here is the "Now Forever/Forever Now," typography on the foxing. "A tribute to adolescent behaviour and attitude" says W.W. designer Brian SS Jensen.
The Vault by Vans x Wood Wood OG Old Skool LX will be available exclusively from Wood Wood stores and online on Thursday, November 30. Retail is $105.
