Blends gives us a preview of the latest and greatest offerings from Vans Vault, featuring the inaugural debut of the Lite LX model. Typically Vans shoes start off in the Vault line, and work their way down to the mainstream channels of Vans products, but this time it started out a little bit backwards. What started off as an LXVI feature, which then made it’s way to every Vans store, the Lite line has been wildly successful, obviously due to their level of comfort compared to our typical beloved Vans. The key feature is the CMEVA (Compression Molded Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) outsoles also known as Ultracush Lite technology. With their smart “PICK ME UP” orange tags adorned on every pair, they sparked people’s curiosity, and once Vans started creating them in the classic colorways that we’re all familiar with, that’s when people really started to give them a chance. We now get to see a premium versions of these shoes, by way of the Vault Lite series. For the first round, we see 3 Authentic Lite LX’s, 2 Old Skool Lite LX’s, and 2 Sk8-Hi Lite LX’s, wrapped entirely in premium leather with leather insoles. These will be available this weekend at all Blends accounts that carry the Vault by Vans line, as well as online.
