Amsterdam-based Patta dive back into the Vans Vault, revisiting the duo’s past ‘Mean Eyed Cat’ packs to deliver new takes on the iconic Sk8-Hi and vans old skool femme soldes. A diverse range of colourways makes up the latest collaborative collection, each blessed with bold Patta and Vans iconography to show off exactly who you’re runnin’ with.Executed in true Patta fashion, the pack sees the boutique’s signature script logo appearing across the uppers, which arrive in black, white, ‘Frost Grey’, ‘High Risk Red’, ‘Silver Pink’, ‘Salute’, and ‘Almond Buff’, respectively. Like the past projects, each midsole is decorated with large ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ text, while custom Patta laces add to the branded hits.
As an added bonus, the collection vans slip on noir homme caters for the whole family, with five of the designs also made in toddler’s sizes, marking the first time Kith has introduced collaborative footwear for their kid’s line. The custom prints are continued, this time on the OG Classic Slip-On silhouette, while retaining similar elements such as the co-branded woven labels, leather heel patch, and collar. Special packaging is also offered for the kid’s models.
The vans france outlet canvas uppers on each colourway are executed with an all-over Kith print, and the left and right shoe feature asymmetrical branding on the back side of the flag labels. Kith’s 10th Anniversary logo replaces the ‘I’ with an ‘X’, which is seen on the right shoe, while the left shoe features ‘Since 2011’. The footbeds are also custom-printed with a ‘KXTH’ logo. Finally, each model arrives in custom packaging that displays the print seen on the shoe.
Consisting of the vans chaussure femme prix, Authentic and Slip-On, these Vans undergo the FDMTL treatment from top to bottom, and the packaging too. The midsole tape is particularly glossy in its deep blue finish, meaning it will develop its own patina with use. Meanwhile, the uppers have already started the wabi-sabi, with the surface of the canvas uppers fluffed up and thinning to replicate heavy use. Looking past the damaged exterior reveals FDMTL’s unique boro patchwork and sashiko stitching. This latter detail is continued on the laces of the Authentic and Sk8-Hi, which also features the same stitching on its Jazz stripe. As for the box, this collaborative edition applies a faded indigo print to simulate the finish of the shoes contained inside.
