While the LXVI category of the Vans footwear line has at times been code for "sneakers that don't at all reflect the brand's general design language," the new LXVI Prime looks to take the biggest swing and aesthetic depature yet.

With a laser perforated upper, bonded overlays and one-piece bootie tongue construction, these aren't your classic checkered slip-ons.

Slated to drop this Saturday, March 1st during a busy weekend of shoe releases, the Black/Light Grey and Light Grey/White versions seen below can be had at the Vans online store and at select Vans accounts nationwide.
