Californian Vans and Tokyo based FDMTL work together for the third successive year on their highly acclaimed collaborative project. Staying true to their aesthetics, Vans challenged the Japanese niche brand to dress their Authentic and Slip-On model with FDMTL's quintessential patchwork and sashiko fabrics. Both techniques date back to the Edo period in Japan (1600-1800), way before the country industrialized.
This is the first season the shoes are available outside of Japan and we are grateful to be among the select amount of retailers to present you this fabulous project. Both Slip-On and Authentic are available in size US 6.5-12 and will cost €129,95. They come with a branded dustbag and special collaborative box. Launching 22 June at 11:00 CET instore (Haarlemmerstraat) and online via this link.
