Vans x Primitive – Half Cab Pro “Cable Knit” (Review)

So here they are. Finally. Think back to when you were a kid on Christmas morning…or your first day of Hannukah…or your birthday…or when you knew you were about to lose your virginity, or…huh? What? Oh, nevermind, sorry! That emotion never gets old. That’s exactly what I felt when I went out to my porch and saw a big box with a return address from Primitive. Now, I might sound biased after that little build up there, but I’m going to say that these will be the best Half Cab of the year. Yup, that’s right. THE BEST. Even with all of the 20th Anniversary models yet to come out, these have so many features that a proper collaboration should have. Unique materials? Check. Company branding? Check. A theme? Check. Something original? Check. You can tell these were designed by some sneakerheads, and that’s no secret.

The guys over at Primitive were sneaker collectors long before they opened their doors, and by knowing some friends, and having an envious network, they have made their success look easy. It doesn’t hurt to have the baddest models in the game showing off your product either! If you noticed though, this time they played down Shay Maria, and let the press photos focus more on the shoes, which was subconsciously making you pay attention to the details!

These Half Cab Pro’s couldn’t have come out more perfect. I love the cable knit wool sweater material, the metal Half Cab tag, and you can’t forget the custom printed footbed, inside tongue label, and heel tab. Did you even notice the satin lining? On point! These will be out tomorrow only at Primitive in Encino, and in Germany, and a few pairs will be put on their webstore as well.
