Combining skater owned brand Alltimers’ high-spirited style and Vans’ legendary reputation for designing skate-focused footwear with classic appeal, these Vans x Alltimers Sk8-Mid Pro Shoes have been constructed using a combination of materials and carry a bold aesthetic with custom embroidered characters. True navy coloured suede wraps around the front toe vamp with a curved line of perforation for ventilation and across the laces border which holds flat white cotton laces in place to ensure a secure fit. On the inner side of the foot a two tone jacquard knitted checkerboard insert taps into Vans’ heritage and provides a background for an embroidered illustration of a white Bull Terrier whilst on the
outside side durable colour matched canvas has been selected and another embroidered design showing a white and blue dragon has been positioned close to the heel. Translucent curved side stripes have been added on each side which brings additional texture to the silhouette and a signature Vans detail in addition to a curved suede overlay on the heel that features an embossed Alltimers martini glass logo.
A woven Vans Off The Wall label wraps around the top edge of the suede tongue and the raised ankle is padded with an inner canvas border alongside an UltraCush HD footbed built with dual-density foam for responsive cushioning. Underfoot DURACAP reinforcement has been added in high-wear areas to withstand a high level of abuse whilst an original hard wearing waffle outsole delivers a high level of traction across a variety of terrains.
Based in New York City Alltimers are known for their amusing pop culture inspired graphics and experimental design style which is becoming progressively more polished with each season. For this collaboration Vans has imparted some of their own fun-loving vibes across two staple footwear styles to create an air of mischievous indulgence that includes impish cartoon characters inspired by a vintage Looney Toons sweatshirt.
