Our friends to the North, OTH, have been teasing the official info of their upcoming 3-way collaboration with Vault By Vans, and Raised by Wolves. There’s been quite the build up on these, teasing a few photos here and there on social media, and surprising us with the mystery 3rd party collaborator, and we now get the full look on what will be coming out. This time, we get two MTE models, which couldn’t have come at a better time for everyone on the East Coast, and of course in Canada as well, where these will be released. But don’t worry, pairs will be available on both party’s websites as well. The design is clean and sophisticated, just like all of OTH’s Vans collabs, and the coolest feature is the mis-matched uppers, which we can think of only one other Vans collaboration out there who has used this idea. To get the entire story, check out what OTH has to say about this pack after the jump!
The following is via OTH:
“We are proud to introduce the latest chapter in OFF THE HOOK’s ongoing Vans OTH project, and a collaborative endeavour with Canadian brand Raised by Wolves. The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack has been conceived around Montreal’s precocious weather and the concept of intertwining different relationships and materials into a single project.
The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack represents two of the most important relationships in Canadian streetwear coming together under a single project. The Vans OTH project has provided the most important selection of Vans in Canada, as well as a number of notable collaborations, while OFF THE HOOK and Raised by Wolves have been longtime partners, often teaming to launch Raised by Wolves’ seasonal collections at the Montreal shop. These two relationships coming together inspired uniting suede and leather on a single pair of shoes.
The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack has been built around two classic Vans silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi LX and the Old Skool Zip LX, with a number of modern twists applied to each that transform both pairs into weather-ready sneakers that merge Vans’ strong history with OFF THE HOOK and Raised by Wolves’ modern streetwear aesthetic. Both the Sk8-Hi LX and the Old Skool Zip LX feature leather and suede panelling, with the left foot constructed from a premium leather upper and suede toe box, while the right foot is constructed using premium suede for the upper and leather for the toe box. Both pairs have been outfitted with water-resistant Scotchguard technology, sealed zippers, and gusseted tongues, to ensure that Montreal’s temperamental weather doesn’t dampen your feet, or your mood. The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack has been outfitted with Vans MTE soles, to ensure maximum grip in slippery conditions. Additionally the Sk8-Hi LX and Old Skool Zip LX feature reflective Jazz Stripes to make sure that both pairs are as equipped for the night, as they are for the day.”
The Vans x OTH x Raised by Wolves pack will be released in-store at OFF THE HOOK and online on shop.offthehook.ca and raisedbywolves.ca on Saturday, February 27th at 11am. The Sk8-Hi Zip LX retails at $180CAD, while the Old Skool Zip LX checks in at $150CAD.
