Vans x 430 “BMX Connection Pack II” (Spring 2011)

(Update as of 5/24/11:  This pack has now started showing up at 430 retailers, as well as online on a few Rakuten sites, and yes, they ship to the USA, if you are still lucky to find your size!  Click here for a few overseas sellers!)

 

At the end of April, we can expect this collaboration project between Vans and Japanese BMX company, 430.  This is 430’s 15th anniversary year, and is Vans’ 45th anniversary, so they wanted to create a special project for the occasion.  Seen here are the two models chosen, the Chukka, and the Era, both covered in black premium suede, sitting on top of white midsoles, with double-black foxing stripes.  The laces, and a few accent pieces are done up in a bright red, and there is a 430 branding tag on the tongue of each shoe.  Also added, is an embroidered brand logo on the heel of the Chukka, as well as on the PU sockliner of each shoe.  These are expected to release at the end of April, at 430 retailers.
