Designed in collaboration with skater owned brand Alltimers, these true white Vans x Alltimers Sk8-Mid Pro Shoes offer a combination of unique style from the New York City based brand and Vans’ established reputation for quality skate-focused footwear. Durable suede has been selected for the toe vamp, tongue and laces border for a hard wearing finish whilst a curved line of perforation has been added around the toes to encourage ventilation. Flat white cotton laces provide a secure fit and a white woven label wraps around the top of the tongue showing signature Vans Off The Wall branding. On the outer side of the foot crisp white canvas has been selected to provide a clean background for an embroidered blue dragon character whilst on the other side a bold two tone jacquard knitted checkerboard fabric stands out from the rest of the design with an embroidered Bull Terrier added towards the heel. Bringing additional texture to the design on both sides translucent side stripes have been layered on top coloured in true white and red. The Alltimers cocktail glass logo has been embossed onto the back of both heels.
For comfort and support during all day skate sessions the raised ankle is cushioned by a padded canvas border and an UltraCush HD footbed built with dual-density foam has been added within for protection against high impacts and reactive cushioning. Underfoot the original hard wearing waffle outsole delivers a high level of traction across a variety of terrains and is supported by DURACAP reinforcement at high-wear areas.
Becoming progressively more refined with each season, Alltimers was founded in 2013 and are known for their amusing pop culture inspired graphics which can be seen across apparel and unusual skate deck designs. This fun-loving collaborative collection with Vans focuses on the idea of ‘mischievous indulgence’ with embroidered cartoon characters inspired by a vintage Looney Toons sweatshirt and jacquard checkerboard knits which presents a print design directly associated with Vans.
