Offthewall.tv – Vans Vault x Horween Leather Company Collection

Vans Vault has released information regarding a special collaboration with Horween Leather Company, soon to hit Vault dealers.  Offthewall.tv was on hand to follow alongside the design team, as they toured the Horween tannery in Chicago, listening to Skip Horween, talk about the hard work it takes to create a top-notch product, still being made here in the U.S.A., since 1909.  He’s the great-grandson to the founder of the company, who migrated from Ukraine  to America in the early 1900s.  This upcoming project will consist of quite a few models, and Taka Hayashi is on board as well, to design a few shoes.  In the video, we get a glimpse of some classics, as well as some newer models, such as the Era, Mountain Edition, Zapato Del Barco, Trek Lo, and a new field boot that I don’t know the name of.  The leather is something to admire, as you just don’t see this level of quality in most sneakers anymore.  These are definitely on my hit list.  How about you?
