A year ago, Vans introduced the Lite technology to their Classic silhouettes. Also, they brought the materials to an Authentic with the help of KICKS/HI in their Mynah Bird collaboration. Today, the brains behind the Lite moniker are bringing the materials to their Vault line in the way of three new models: the Authentic, Old Skool, and Sk8 Hi LX Lite.
Vans decided to pair their proprietary CMEVA-bases Ultracush Lite cushioning system for footbed and outsole with premium leather uppers to recreate the normal look of a Vault but with a far more comfortable and lighter feel.
The first drop gives us two colorways each of the Old Skool LX Lite and Sk8 Hi LX Lite: white/black and gray/white. For the three pairs of Authentic LX Lites, Vans decided to go the monotone route and give us all black, gray, and white pairs with matching mids. Leather tongue tags, sock liners, and Vans flag tags finish off each pair.
