A member of the http://united-arrows.co.jp” target=”_blank”>UNITED ARROWS retail family, Japanese boutique http://tokishirazu.jp” target=”_blank”>Tokishirazu created a niche while focusing on transitional clothing labels to come out of Harajuku. In appreciation of its ongoing support, apparel label http://whitemountaineering.com” target=”_blank”>White Mountaineering partnered with http://vans.com” target=”_blank”>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.
Scheduled to launch in late March, shoppers now have the opportunity to pre-order the collaboration at http://zozo.jp/shop/tokishirazu” target=”_blank”>Tokishirazu web store at http://zozo.jp” target=”_blank”>ZOZOTOWN shopping network online.
