Vans Vault x Diemme – Montebelluna Collection (Spring/Summer 2013)

diemme-vans-vault-spring-2013-01-570x498

We now have some new information on the upcoming sneaker collaboration with Vault and Italian brand Diemme.  They’ve already teamed up on a high-end boot a few months ago, and this time around they’re working with two familiar silhouettes.  There’s some differences though, and so the collaborators gave the shoes their own name, respectively.  First up is the Montebelluna Hi LX, the Sk8-Hi variation, and next is the Montebelluna Lo LX, which gets it’s good looks from the classic Slip-On.  Both are hand-constructed in fine black or navy Italian leather, and sit on top of a cupsole that is stitched to the upper, and from 10 feet away you couldn’t tell that these aren’t equipped with a standard Vans vulc sole.  Good thing, because with the $300 and $350 price mark, you want these things to last longer than your average pair of Vans!  Oh, you didn’t know that was the price?  Hehe, well what do you expect from a fine hand-made Italian piece of craftsmanship?  Now, the question is…will you pay full retail for these in April, when they start showing up in assuming limited numbers?
