WTAPS x Vans is back and better than ever.
Tetsu Nishiyama is certainly no stranger when it comes to collaborations with Vans, but he has definitely gone all out with the upcoming WTAPS x Vault by Vans 2022AW collection. Flawlessly fusing two of his brand's biggest inspirations, motorcycle culture and military gear, this four-shoe pack has got to be his best partnership with the Anaheim-based skate company yet, so make sure you read on to find out everything that you need to know.
Featuring the Chukka, Era, Half Cab, and Old Skool, WTAPS has covered this quartet in a coyote beige suede construction that's giving us army vibes. WTAPS and Vans branded tags are stitched on to the uppers of each sneaker and slick flat laces tie everything together. The Chukka and Era rest on top of all-black vulcanized rubber midsoles, while the Half Cab and Old Skool opt for a classic white unit. This duo is also decorated with a motorcycle gang-inspired crossbones motif that takes over the upper. All four pairs come in special edition co-branded shoeboxes, and leaks suggest that clothing will also drop as part of the collection.
The WTAPS x Vault by Vans 2022AW Collection is set to release on November 5th, 2022, in men's sizes. Expected to be available via WTAPS, Vans, and select retailers worldwide, a retail price has yet TBA.
