It’s been seven months since UNDERCOVER and Vault by Vans tantalizingly teased their collab sneakers, but now, finally, we can take a comprehensive look at the soon-to-be-released collection.
The drop sees Jun Takahashi’s Japanese label give both the OG Era LX and the OG Old Skool LX silhouettes fresh makeovers. The Era comes in three colorways: bright red, black, and white (not pictured.) Each one boasts a relatively clean and simple design, with text along the toe box reading: “Take me in time, time to the music, Take me away to the twilight zone,” referring to the English rock band Temple’s 2014 single “Shelter Song.”
The Old Skool, on the other hand, will arrive in gray and bordeaux, with a delightful all-over floral pattern across the upper — a popular motif across Takahashi’s past collections.
The UNDERCOVER x Vault by Vans collection will retail between $130 and $150 at select stores starting February 4.
In other sneaker news, ASICS GEL-Lyte V is arriving in three strong new colorways for spring.
