Words via Union:

“Union Los Angeles is proud to announce the launch date for our first collaboration with our Cali neighbors, Vans.
On March 18th, we will release three colors of the Union x Vans ‘Old Skool’ collaboration; A Dusty Pink, A Muted Gold and an Off White.
The shoe’s design is simple, but the devil is in the details.  For the main body of the shoe we used a “lux” twill weave matched with a smooth, buttery suede and the Vans “stripe” is made of a smooth “lux” pebble grain leather.  Each shoe is tonal, head to toe with the exception of the inner shoe, we used a natural veg-tan leather on. As for the sole unit, we popped with a marine blue boat-shoe sole, just for shits and giggles.

We will be launching some accompanying apparel with the capsule so stay tuned for more images and further editorials leading up to the release.”

Judging by the pics, these look to be a Vault OG release.  The footbed says ORIGINALS on it.  Not sure how or why Union would fail to mention it.  I guess these are just another pair of Vans “lows” huh?  One other feature that even Union failed to mention, which stands out the most to me, is the two oversized “donut” lace eyelets.  Something you don’t see every day.
