WOOYOUNGMI x Vault by Vans
Vault by Vans has joined with iconic Korean menswear brand WOOYOUNGMI for a special collaboration on the Slip-On. Drawing inspiration from Catherine Hardwick’s cult film Lords of Dogtown, which pays homage to young Venice Beach skaters Tony Alva, Jay Adams, and Stacey Peralta, the laceless sneaker is optioned in two colorways.
Showcased in royal blue and deep red, each pair has been done up in premium full grain leather, then featuring hand-drawn paisley prints on the insole, referencing the bandanas worn by skaters during the Dogtown era. WOOYOUNGMI branding in turn tags the sneakers on the sidewalls.
You can look forward to WOOYOUNGMI and Vault by Vans’ collabo Slip-Ons launching June 2 at Vans stores and WOOYOUNGMI boutiques in Seoul. There are no prices as yet although we were lucky to get a pair.
