Editor’s Notes: The Darkside Initiative x Vans collab has a bit of story behind it. In 2012 during a post-game interview, the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins said “I don’t like any guy on their team,” about the Philadelphia Flyers. In response, the next game the Flyers placed T-shirts on every one of their fans’ seats, which read “Guess what? We don’t like you either!” The Darkside Initiative x Vans embody that same “fuck you” attitude in the ComfyCush LX collaboration.
Both pairs of sneakers are made from matte black steerhide leather with a grey midsole. The ComfyCush waffle sole is highlighted in black and orange. Finally, the co-branding is also orange, present on the tongue and heel.
