Diemme x Vans Vault Montebelluna Hi LX

diemme-x-vans-vault-2013-fall-winter-montebelluna-hi-lx-1 diemme-x-vans-vault-2013-fall-winter-montebelluna-hi-lx-2Kicking off last winter with a duo of luxurious Buffalo Boots before expanding this spring to include a premium take on the Classic Slip-On and the Sk8-Hi-inspired Montebelluna Hi LX, the Diemme x Vans Vault collaboration returns for Autumn Winter 2013 with yet another installment of the Montebelluna Hi LX. This time around the streamlined high-top – named for the Italian town Diemme calls home – comes in beautiful shades of red and grey, each boasting premium leather uppers, contrasting white accents, and an il Tricolore branding tab so there’s no mistaking their place of origin.

Vans x Engineered Garments

Vault-by-Vans-x-Engineered-Garments-Collection-635

In the sneaker world, it seems like new collaborations drop every hour on the hour, but this is one that’s definitely worth talking about. Engineered Garments designer Daiki Suzuki has a way of making even the most mundane clothes fresh and new. His vision of Americana filtered through a keen eye for fit, finish, fabric, and a nod to the future is what netted him our award as the Best New Menswear Designer in America in 2008. An avid surfer, it’s not too surprising to see Suzuki collaborating with storied sneaker brand Vans. The Vault by Vans line has always offered interesting takes on old classics from the likes of WTAPS and Taka Hayashi, but the Engineered Garments collab takes things to a different level. Influenced by ’70s skate rags and an emphasis on quality materials, the Authentic LX gets reimagined in a hardy 12 oz. Sunforger cotton canvas and a reversed olive sateen, but the real star is the Classic Slip-On LX, done up in three different colored leathers–the kicker is that both uppers mix up smooth leather with a slubby, unifinished hide. It’s an awesome wabi-sabi twist on a classic sneaker.

The shoes launch on Tuesday, September 10

vans-vault-2013-spring-og-style-36-lx-two-tone-1 Vans Vault is back with the OG Style 36 LX Two Tone range. A tribute to the brand’s iconic 1978 low-top model that may be better known as the Old Skool, this collection reworks the “jazz striped” fan-favorite with a duo of two tone offerings in classic blue/dandelion and orange rust/coconut shell. Be on the lookout for the Vans Vault 2013 Spring OG Style 36 LX Two Tone models to hit select Vault by Vans stockists sometime in June.

Nike Roshe Run Premium

The Roche Run has been one of my favourite styles over the summer and two new colorways of the Premium edition have emerged from the Winter 2012 Collection. The new versions of the popular sneaker come in Dark Royal Blue/Neutral-Sunburst-Neutral and Black/Rave Pink-Medium Olive-Sandtrap options which are both very effective. Releasing in October.
