This spring, Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, partners with Schoeller, the leader in innovative and high-tech performance textiles, to create a seven-piece footwear collection featuring Schoeller’s highly functional fabrications on Vans’ classic silhouettes.
The Swiss textile company is committed to developing materials that utilize the latest ecologically-based techniques, blended with fresh design. Schoeller’s elastic wind and water repellent soft shell fabric utilizes distinct bonded layers that ensure maximum functionality and all-day comfort.
For the collection, Vault by Vans x Schoeller utilizes fabrications equipped for wet elements across Vans’ classic silhouettes including the Mid Skool Lite LX and the Authentic ’66 Lite LX in shades blue, green, pink and off white. Vans incorporates its Classic Lites construction that features UltraCush™ Lite technology and an ActionFit™ last shape to re-engineer the iconic footwear styles with increased comfort, improved fit and an overall weight reduction. Emblematic of Vans legacy while signifying its progressive design ethos, the Authentic Lite and Mid Skool Lite are modified versions of their original vulcanized forms, presenting a diverse assortment of lightweight and comfort-driven Vans Classics.
The Vault by Vans x Schoeller collection retails from $80 to $105 USD and launches globally on March 25, 2017 at select Vault accounts. Learn more about this special project at www.vans.com/vault.
