The latest in collaborative releases, Vault by Vans recently unveiled they’ve teamed up with END. and MASTERMIND WORLD for the launch of a capsule offering that “celebrates the importance of minute details and subcultural styling.”
Honing in on two of Vans’ iconic footwear styles, the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, both are transformed under the creative eye of MASTERMIND WORLD founder Masaaki Homma to form contemporary, and truly unique, updates of classic staples in black and white options. Both seeing substantial overhauls for the collection, the Old Skool is reworked with suede, leather and canvas uppers, exposed foam collars and Sidestripe, a doubled-up tongue and MASTERMIND WORLD’s branding is featured throughout; while the Sk8-Hi sees the uppers detailed with skull branding and zips, a deconstructed sole unit, and misaligned foxing tape split.
Alongside the aforementioned footwear releases, the drop is complemented with a similarly styled black and white skate deck with skulls printed on either side. Check out some shots of the collection below and shop the Vault by Vans x END. x MASTERMIND WORLD collection via END from November 27th.
