One of Vans’ most coveted and anticipated collaborations is back for its 14th year. Vault by Vans x WTAPS release is the latest footwear styles that combine Vans’ timeless styles with WTAPS’ military-meets-urban sensibility. This fall, two themes run throughout the collection that will emerge first in its footwear iterations, initially with GPS.
The GPS theme aligns with the military references for which WTAPS is well-known, with the WTAPS logo and GPS coordinates printed along the outsole of the Vans OG Old Skool and OG Slip-On. The first release will be in black and white, featuring the WTAPS logo and GPS coordinates printed in white text against the black outsole, as well as the same design reimagined on black shoe featuring an orange outsole. WTAPS is a Japanese brand founded in 2006 by Tetsu Nishiyama with a philosophy that is centered around placing things where they should be and draws inspiration from military clothing due to its practicality, production process, stitching and material details. The collection will unveil a secondary drop, including apparel, later this season.
