Vans OTW hooks up with Publish Brand for a collaborative piece for the Holiday 2014 collection, working off the shoe company’s Breton Boot SE. The collabo takes the best of both worlds, as Publish’s street-meets-menswear aesthetic is instilled in Vans’ deluxe silhouette with a focus on upgraded materials and clean detailing
The majority of the boot’s upper exhibits an athletic influence, employing water-resistant ballistic nylon swatches from midfoot to toe vamp with a continuous hit of black through the Vibram Cristy outsole. The embossed leather heel paneling and midsole clip offer some contrast in stark white, while the neoprene tongue and collar construction is paired with a full-length UltraCush HD footbed for a comfort. Finally, reflective 3M ankle strips added visibility during the after hours.
The Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE launches Saturday (Oct. 25) in-store at KICKS/HI with a release party the following day, which you can RSVP at Vans.com/VansxPublish.
The Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE drops at additional Vans OTW Collection accounts in early December for $160 USD.
