Vans Unveils Vault by Vans x WTAPS Original Classics Collection
Vans and WTAPS continue their storied partnership by unveiling a premium 10-piece footwear and apparel collection, deeply rooted from the finest Japanese craftsmanship.
As Vans celebrates its 50th anniversary and WTAPS approaches their 20th year, both brands honor their history by introducing an Anaconda-inspired embossed leather pack in three new colorways, alongside a collection of Vault by Vans Original Classics highlighting the coveted Bones motif. Taking the most sought-after design emblem in the history of Vans x WTAPS projects, the white stitched Bones motif resurfaces on black and olive iterations of the OG Sk8-Hi LX, OG Chukka Boot LX and OG Authentic LX. Each style is unified by the coveted Bones pattern stitched across the quarter panels, complete with a solid toecap design.
A unique piece to round out the fall collection reveals a premium military-inspired jacket, sporting the all-over Bones motif and a final, expressive touch that reads “Vans #1 Waffle Lovers Club” stitched on the back.
The Vault by Vans x WTAPS collection retails from $65 to $360 and launches in Japan on Saturday, Aug. 20. The Anaconda styles will be available globally on Saturday, Aug. 27, and the Bones styles on Saturday, Sept. 10. The jacket will be available in limited quantities in select retailers globally alongside the Bones footwear capsule.
