Combining Van’s timeless aesthetic with WTAPS’ blend of military and urban chic, the highly anticipated Vault by Vans x WTAP has now landed.
Founded in 2006 by Tetsu Nishiyama, WTAP centres around the practicality, production process and material of military clothing, with a focus on placing things where they should be placed.
Back for its fourteenth year, this season the collaboration’s range has two themes prevalent that will emerge in footwear iterations first with GPS. The GPS highlights a military reference for which WTAP is known for. Printed along the outsole of the OG Old School and the OG Slip on is the WTAP logo and GPS coordinates, a unique and vibrant touch to a classic shoe. The first release will be in black and white, with the logo and GPS coordinates printed in white on the black sole, along with the same designed on black featuring an orange outsole.
Vault by Vans x WTAPS collection will be releasing a second drop later this season, alongside the launch of apparel. The first footwear drop will be available at Loaded on August 22.
