VAULT BY VANS X WTAPS
Vault by Vans and WTAPS Come Together Once Again. One of Vans’ most coveted and anticipated collaborations is back for its 14th year: Vault by Vans x WTAPS release the latest footwear styles that combine Vans’ timeless styles with WTAPS’ military-meets-urban sensibility. The collection will unveil a secondary drop, including apparel, later this season.
Available August 22nd at select Vault retailers globally and additional styles will be unveiled later this season.
WTAPS is a Japanese brand founded in 2006 by Tetsu Nishiyama with a philosophy that is centered around placing things where they should be and draws inspiration from military clothing due to its practicality, production process, stitching and material details.
This fall, there are two themes prevalent throughout the collection that will emerge in footwear iterations, first with GPS. The GPS theme aligns with the military references for which WTAPS is well-known. The WTAPS logo and GPS coordinates are printed along the outsole of the OG Old School and OG Slip-On. The first release will be in black and white, featuring the WTAPS logo and GPS coordinates printed in white text against the black outsole, as well as the same design imagined on black featuring an orange outsole.
