Scottish company Harris Tweed uses their legendary hand-woven cloth on three classic Vault by Vans models, the Buffalo Boot HT LX, Era 46 HT LX and Old Skool Decon HT LX (see above images 1-4). They come in a variety of tweed tones, and are accented by Horween leather toe and heel caps. The shoes also feature leather laces and aged metal eyelets. They are available now on End.
With New York store DQM, Vans has created an exclusive line of holiday “Wovens” (see above images 5-7), whose uppers are entirely woven by hand. In this new take on the Era and Sk8 Hi, the collaborators decided on a simple, 2-color palette of black and rust suede. They will be released tomorrow, November 29th, exclusively at the Vans DQM General Store (93 Grand Street) and on DQM’s online shop.
Be sure to check out these Fall/Winter collections, available just in time for the holiday.
