Vans Vault – UltraRange LX (Official Vans Info)


Here’s some official info from Vans regarding the UltraRange LX:

“Debuting this spring, Vans celebrates the spirit of adventure with the introduction of the UltraRange, a versatile footwear innovation designed to traverse with you, wherever your wildest pursuits may lead. With a modern shape and new co-molded midsole construction, Vans’ UltraRange is engineered with fundamental design tenets that emphasize advanced comfort, lightweight traction, and superior mobility, empowering your journey from the ground up.

 Releasing worldwide May 20 through the exclusive Vault by Vans label, the limited-edition UltraRange UC LX model employs Vans’ next generation of footwear technology in a slim-profile, low top design, blending premium leathers and ballistic nylon textiles for enhanced durability. Offered in three classic monochromatic hues, the UltraRange debut is amplified by a unique partnership with select Vault by Vans retailers, engaging their vision to create striking visual campaigns inspired by themes of adventure, exploration, and discovery. Across varying creative pursuits ranging from a behind the scenes look into the making of a Bodega store editorial, a nostalgic portrait of a painting with Blends, or a rare sunny afternoon roving London with UK musician Leks Rivers and Foot Patrol, each partner conveys an insightful portrayal of the UltraRange in its natural exploratory element.

Vans Vault – Sk8-Hi Reissue Lite LX & Old Skool Lite LX (Available Now @properlbc)


Proper gives us one of the first looks at the latest Vans Vault Lite collection.  The popularity of the Lite models has really started to take off, especially since it looks like the manufacturing processes of the soles have improved.  We’re starting to see less angles and creases in the one-piece UltraCush foxing, making them look even closer to our beloved classics, but the comfort is still top-notch compared to any other Vans out there.  This season, Vault went with a premium tonal nubuck for the entire uppers, available in some stunning colorways such as Dark Steel, Blue, Brown, Black, and Navy, but these aren’t your typical basic colors by any means.  The pics Proper took will give you a much better perspective.  As with most of these Vault Lites, the prices are a little bit higher than what we’re used to, but considering that the soles last longer, and are much easier to clean (baby wipes does the trick, no lie!), you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth.

Now available from Proper, and will be hitting your local Vault dealer soon!
