Vans have teamed up with Stockholm-based menswear label Our Legacy to give us their take on some of Vans’ most iconic silhouettes. The collaborative offerings take on a bold orange, black, and white colourways of the Authentic, Half Cab, and Old Skool.
Our Legacy co-founder Jockum Hallin grew up in Sweden in the the early 90’s. Surrounded by a world of do-it-yourself culture that exposed him to skateboarding, and touring with punk and hardcore bands. Releasing records on their own accord, and sleeping on floors, Hallin took this spirited attitude and developed it into other creative endeavours across music and fashion. These three silhouettes in their array of colourways are a throwback to these times.
The Authentic comes to us in Black, Orange, and White, wrapped in a tonal nylon and accented with white stitching and hardware. The Half Cab comes in the same trio of colours with the Black, Orange, and White skate classic taking on tonal finishes in a mixture of rough suede and nylon. Lastly a duo of Black and White Old Skools feature a tonal trifecta of leather, suede, and nylon from heel to toe. All three silhouettes come with premium finishes, leather lining, and subtle woven ‘Our Legacy’ emblems stitched into the lining much like that of the collar of a garment.
The Our Legacy x Vans Vault range will be hitting our shelves this Saturday the 18th of March from 11am at our Level 1/15 McKillop Street store.
