Carhartt WIP x Vans Syndicate 2012 Winter Old Skool Camo

While camouflage has seen its fair share of the fashion spotlight over the past few years — having been used across everything from shirts and pants to accessories and shoes — Flecktarn camouflage is one of the lesser-tapped motifs. Said to be designed around the 1930s, the disruptive pattern was originally developed for use in woodland terrain and is traditionally seen in a mixture of three to six-color iterations. Laying claim to the iconic camo, Carhartt has once again aligned with Vans for a special Winter 2012 Old Skool option.

The pair dons the outdoor aesthetic quite well with the majority of the classic silhouette generously enveloped in the green, brown and black. While the disruptive pattern traces its way into the interior across the shoe’s footbed, hits of rich brown leather across the toe cap panel and along the lace vamp are a welcome delineation that effectively breaks apart the shoe’s layers. Metal eyelets, a supple corduroy tongue and threaded boot laces augment the aesthetic and provide a nice completion to the Old Skool.

Gourmet introduces a look into its Camo Collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Offering up five of its silhouettes, each pair features an obvious military influence with various degrees of traditional camouflage covering different panels of the construction. Contrasted with white and off-white outsoles, the pair juxtaposes solid blacks, browns and tonal olive hues that delineate each shoe quite well.
