Taka Hayashi x Vault by Vans Type 24 and 47 Pack

Vans vault in-house designer Taka Hayashi has revealed two new releases with the famous skate brand, followed by two “DIY” -thought publications from last year. In the most recent collaboration, Hayashi dives into the Vans archive to get two silhouettes – the OG Style 24 LX and the OG Style 47 LX – a makeover inspired by Formula 1 racing.

For Style 24, Hayashi has clad the high-top construction of the sneaker with an upper made of canvas with contrasting piping and tip protection. The shoe’s two colorways – one in black and white and one in white and cream – incorporate Hayashi’s take on racing iconography, including a brand new checkerboard flag and logo-heavy team jackets.

The second silhouette in the pack, the Style 47, refers to the influence of racing through its quilted construction, which was designed as an homage to the racing suits of the 1970s. This inspiration continues in the contrasting heel stripes, while printed midsoles feature the classic Vans checkerboard pattern as a nod to racing flags. Style 47 is available in two colors: “Baja Blue” with white heel stripes and “Raven” with gold stripes.

Vans Style 24’s Taka Hayashi x Vault will be released on February 26th while Style 47 is out the Vans webshop and choose retailers on March 1st.

In case you missed it Vans recently partnered with PORTER for a far-reaching cooperation.

Vans Vault UA OG Type 53 LX “Pony/White/Black”

Vans Vault is known for being the wild kid of So Cal’s shoe department and the newest UA OG Style 53 LX in “pony / white / black” is the perfect example of this.

The upper is made entirely of artificial pony hair and has a mottled black and white design that is reminiscent of a pony. While the base is a bit smooth, Vans Vault has left the edges of the slip-on shoe untrimmed and sees a furry collar around the opening of the shoe and its tongue area.

In the usual form, the Style 53 has a penny loafer-like strap with the iconic eye-shaped slit in the middle that sits on top of the vamp. This formal element contrasts with informal design elements like a black vulcanized rubber sole, which is chunkier than, say, Vans’ slip-on offerings, largely due to its heavy-duty outsole.

The bold new Style 53 LX is rounded off by the darkened license plate on the heel and the tone-white Vans tongue, which is located on the side under the collar of the shoe. Check out the Vans Vault UA OG Style 53 LX in “Pony / White / Black” above and pick up a pair of vendors like Allike, where the sneaker retails for $ 156.86.
