Vans x Proper Holiday ’08 Collection

Vans x Proper Holiday '08 Collab

Vans, noted for catering primarily to the skateboard/surfer youth market, team up with Proper for this holiday ’08 collaboration. Rather than going for bold, loud designs as normal collab’s usually turn out, it seems as if Proper had a real sit down session with Vans to produce these subtle but yet high quality detailed sneakers.

The collection consists of the Chukka Del Barco LX, constructed from a premium full grain leather with heavy-weight pique cotton overlays and an integrated fully functioning 360 degree lacing system, the Authentic One Piece LX, featuring a one piece heavy-weight pique cotton with pigskin lining throughout with a re-engineered drop in footbed and fully siped outsole, and the Long Beach Native LX, a simplified version of the Van’s classic Native American, refined and made with the same heavy-weight pique cotton material seen throughout the collection and with the iconic Van’s checkerboard print embossed in pig suede on the heel spine. Each sneaker is finished off with small details including custom logo and tags.

No exact date on the release of these yet but seeing as how their apart of the holiday collection then they should be with us real soon.

The guys over at Sneaker Freaker have got an interview with the peeps from Proper about this collaboration. Check it out and catch the rest of the collection below.
