WTAPS x Van Syndicate

As Vans has shown again and again this year, they can be an amazing partner to collaborate with. This upcoming shoe, done with WTAPS, shows the potential of what can happen when the versatile, Authentic, gets the design influence of a team as solid as WTAPS. WTAPS transforms the Authentic into a shoe that is simple, elegant, and Rockabilly-esque – a true juggling act, that in this case works beautifully. Available in black or oxblood leather, with a ridged outsold, and full leather lining. This is a tuxedo-grade Vans Authentic that makes some dress shoes look sloppy. These will be extremely limited, with availability starting in early December.
