Vault by Vans teams up with Our Legacy out of Sweden, to bring this overwhelmingly robust collection, full of very high quality pieces. If you’re like me, and have never heard of Our Legacy, then Vans has been kind enough to interview co-owner Jockum Hallin about his brand and his style influence. After reading the short article, I really respect his approach to what he produces. With a focus on fabric, color choices, and dyeing techniques, and not over designing things, they’re able to let the fabrics and silhouettes do the talking. That’s exactly what you are getting with this pack. Vans approached them to do a small project, but they came back with a much larger idea, and after a little bit of compromise, they ended up with a mere 10 shoes, a bunch of tees, a hoodie, and a coaches jacket. Needless to say, this is a big one.
Our Legacy holds themselves to a high standard, and it shows in the attention to details of this collection. They chose their favorite models, the Authentic Pro LX, Old Skool Pro 92 LX, Half Cab Pro 92 LX, and a Sk8-Mid Pro 91 LX. It’s worth noting that we haven’t seen a Pro LX model yet, so this is a cool first. Each pair consists of a high quality army nylon, hairy suede, or a mixture of both. The Half Cab appears to be the band leader with it’s bright orange hairy suede, but the low-key winner is the Sk8-Mid with it’s single-stitch collar, for that true vintage vibe. That’s the one.
To really understand this pack, you just have to read the Vans interview, but enjoy the pics after the jump!
