Earlier today we showed you a video introducing the new Deadstock Canvas Project by LUDWIG VAN and Vans Vault. Here is now a more detailed look at the footwear.
L.A. based designer, and Ludwig Van impresario, Mike Dytri has turned a cache of decades-old original Vans canvas sheets (“deadstock”) purchased at a warehouse sale into his newest collaboration. Working closely with Vans, Ludwig Van created this extremely limited edition collection of only 288 pairs using 14 different patterns. The shoes ship with a D-ring belt, flip book and shoe bag all packaged in a limited edition box. The collection will only be available in five U.S. stores: UNDFT (Los Angeles, CA), Conveyor (Santa Monica, CA), Proper (Long Beach), DQM (New York) and Bows & Arrows (Berkeley, CA). Colette (Paris) and Dover Street Market (London) will carry the shoes in Europe, while the shoes will be released in limited quantities in Japan as well.
Take a detailed look at the resulting sneakers and accessories after the jump.
