Despite being a brand primarily known for its apparel, Haven will occasionally dip into the footwear world for various collaborations. Earlier this fall he was tapped by the boot experts at Dr. Martens to create a stealth version of the classic 1461, and now he’s just introduced his new partnership with Vault by Vans which involves a two-piece pack of the OG Lampin VLT LX. This is the third collaboration between these two parties.
The Canadian imprint often shows a penchant for minimalist style, and that’s exactly what it offers to this new initiative. Instead of using the silhouette’s traditional canvas, Haven upgrades the shoe with water-resistant hairy suedes that make up the majority of the base while tonal nubuck makes up the medial side of the midfoot and stripes. from the heel. The inside of the kicks also arrive with a higher feel as they have been lined with padded collars and soft to the touch pigskin leather. Additionally, the insoles are adorned with the branding of each respective footprint.
The Vans OG Lampin VLT LX Haven x Vault will release through HAVEN flagship stores and on its website on October 23rd. The retail price is set at $150 CAD (about $122 USD).
