An Old Skool, Authentic, and Slip-On are all covered in a custom made Union Kente Cloth. While the Authentic and Slip-On are covered entirely in the print, the Old Skool breaks up the look with solid-colored panels on the toe, eyelets, and heel. Each pair sits atop a traditional white midsole. All of the low-tops will also feature Vans' new ComfyCush technology in the midsole for additional comfort during everyday wear.
According to Union owner Chris Gibbs, the pairs were inspired by a Kente cloth Authentic that Vans released years ago. "I always wanted those, but was never able to cop, so we made a new version for ourselves."
The entire Union Los Angeles x Vans ComfyCush LX collection will release on Saturday, Feb. 16 in-store and online at unionlosangeles.com. Pricing has yet to be announced.
