Steven Alan just released their second collaboration with Vault by Vans this week. The collection comes with the OG silos of the Slip On, Style 36, and Sk8 Hi LX.
All pairs used a cream and black checkerboard pattern printed on a tough cotton twill from the Nihon Menpu textile mill in Japan. For the Slip On, the pattern comprises the vamp and heel counter, while the premium suede covers the quarter and collar. They have decided to use 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.
