Working alongside the Vans Vault team, Saint Alfred modified the Vans Chukka to be suited to the Fall conditions of Chicago. To prevent a pavement slip and give more tread, Saint Alfred built the shoe on a reverse waffle sole. The paneling is constructed with a resin coated canvas treatment to repel water. The inner lining features a premium leather. Three different laces are provided: a hiking lace, a red waxed lace and black waxed lace.
Limited to 200 pairs, the shoe will be available October 6, 2012, exclusively at Saint Alfred, www.stalfred.com/store, Kicks/HI and Bodega.
