A member of the UNITED ARROWS retail family, Japanese boutique Tokishirazu created a niche while focusing on transitional clothing labels to come out of Harajuku. In appreciation of its ongoing support, apparel label White Mountaineering partnered with VANS in creating 2 special Mountain Edition sneakers for retailer’s 8th anniversary.
Cotton canvas in gingham plaid, the limited Mountain Edition features suede overlays in key areas of the upper as well. Since it was originally designed as footwear for BMX riders, the oversize forefoot strap comes in handy as it provides a snug fit for wearer. Include on insole tag is a specific label, “White Mountain Edition”, a word play on the collaboration.
