words_Brandon Richard German-based BMX Innovators Wethepeople have collaborated with Vans footwear on a new Calar Mid. The two entities have had a long standing working relationship, with many of their team riders being sponsored by Vans. For the shoe, Wethepeople wanted to create a shoe that would perform well on the bike, but also be stylish to wear casually. The Calar Mid is a slim mid-top that features a die-cut EVA midsole to enhance comfort and ankle support. They chose to use a sticky gum rubbery outsole for pedal grip, and molded channels on the forefoot to improve flexibility while off the bike. The black, burgundy, and gold upper consists of canvas, nubuck, and mesh build. The Wethepeople collab is expected to hit stores in July.
