Vault by Vans x DQM – “The Halves” OG Sk8-Hi LX (UTP Review!)

IMG_0425

Last weekend had a few big releases, which was kicked off with the DQM “The Halves” Pack.  With a focus on minimalism, DQM chose to let the materials and monochromatic white and black colorways do the talking.  With premium tumbled leather throughout the shoe, these are classy as hell!  The most recognizable and unique feature on this release has to be the luxury high-fashion inspired tongue stitching.  I can’t think of another Vans shoe with this same feature.  The embossed jazz stripe is another nice subtle feature, for those less interested in repping brands and logos.  You may also have failed to notice that the toe is missing any perforations or stitching, which helps reiterate the statement that less is more.  If you’re still on the fence about these, then you better decide quickly.  Rumor has it, that the entire collection consisted of about 80 pairs total.  That’s roughly 20 pairs per style.  If that’s true, then these may not even be available anymore, so good luck!  I have to give a shout out to the homie Jesus Ayala (mayimbe181) for picking these up for me, as they were in-store only, and I can’t forget to thank Sophia from Vans DQM for making sure we were taken care of.  Thank you!
