The upcoming Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Chukka, first previewed earlier this week, is set to release tomorrow in limited numbers.
It appears there's much more to the STA x Vans Vault Chukka than originally thought -- the upper utilizes a water-repellant, resin coated canvas with a premium leather lining, while the outsole features a reverse waffle sole, all of which was chosen with the Chicago winter in mind. The shoe also comes with two additional pairs of waxed leather laces to accompany the hiking laces pictured below.
The Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Chukka drops tomorrow at the Chicago retailer, with additional releases at Bodega and STA's brother store Kicks/Hi.
