Perth’s Highs and Lows have come together with Vans to celebrate their 10th anniversary collaborating on both the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool as a part of the celebrations.

The collaboration rings true to the classic form of the Sk8-Hi with all of the familiar trademarks combined with a mix of waxed suede and Highs and Lows’ signature scale logo printed atop the canvas sectioning. All of these elements are paired off with a tonal black outersole and a tin and alloy celebratory finish through the silver lining, eyelets, and iced out waffle sole revealing the ‘HAL’ wording.

The Old Skool takes on a ballistic mesh upper, pairing itself off with a brushed suede tongue, and triple stitch waxed suede heel wrap and toe-box. The silver lining continues with the same embellishments that run through to the iced waffle sole this time with ‘LOWS’ revealed underneath and medial zipper to finish it all off.

These latest collaborative efforts will hit our shelves at our Level 1/15 McKillop Street store this Saturday the 17th of September from 11am. Any remaining pairs will release online later the same day. Both silhouettes will be available for $229.95 and until Saturday, we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump.

Vans Vault have come together with Japanese label and designer of Undercover Jun Takahashi. Drawing influences from his own range, as well as his love for punk and psychedelic rock and wrapping them around two of Vans’ most iconic silhouettes the Old Skool and the Era. The Old Skool comes to us wrapped in a mixture of suede and canvas, donning a formal rose print that runs throughout the the upper and into the lining. Available in both Bordeaux and Grey colourways run a tonal finish through to their signature sole and all the way into their co-branded inner soles.

Taking a more simplistic approach to his rendition of the Era, Takahashi takes to a Black, Red, and White canvas with lyrics from English band The Temples. Keeping with the aesthetics of his musical influences the toe-box reads ‘Take me in time, time to the music. Take me away to the twilight zone’. Each pair features co-branded inner-soles, and leather lining to finish it all off.

The collaborative Jun Takahashi collection will be available this Saturday the 4th of February from our Level 1/15 McKillop Street store from 10am. The Old Skool will be available in sizes US7 through to US13 (whole sizes only) for $180, and the Era will be available in US7 through to US12 (whole sizes only) for $100.

Vans Vault X Our Legacy

3/14/2017 1:51 PM

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. Any remaining pairs will release online later the same day. The Authentics and Old Skools will be available in sizes US7 through to US12 (whole sizes only) for $200, and the Half Cabs will be available in sizes US7 through to US12 (whole sizes only) for $250. Until Saturday, continue reading after the jump for a closer look at each piece from the range.

Vans Vault 'Jungle Jacquard'

5/23/2017 5:22 PM

The Vans Vault range is ever expanding, bringing a new feel to traditional silhouettes. This time around, the Authentic, and Old Skool receive the ‘Jungle Jacquard’ treatment.

Each pair is fabricated with intricate, variegated weaves and patterns for an elevated finish. The jacquard weaving process means all threads are pre-dyed to match specific Pantone colours, with each strand then threaded through hundreds of needles on a jacquard loom. Each pattern is strategically designed and engineered into one piece leaving it down to the tonal jungle print’s intricacy and contrasting checkerboard patterning to wrap the upper.

Both the Authentic, and Old Skool ‘Jungle Jacquard’ will be releasing this Saturday the 27th of May. Available in store at our Lower Grounds store located in the basement level of our 15 McKillop Street location. For all of the finer details continue reading after the jump.
