Synonymous with high-end footwear, designer Kim Kiroic made a brief detour recently from his usual premium fare. Instead, the Shanghai-based artisan linked up with VANS to create an unique collection based on the timeless VANS Authentic silhouette. Beautifully crafted in fine black leather, the design was then treated to an ornate embroidered toe-box, completed with rubber sole in black. Because of its hand-crafted nature, there will be slight variations on each pair, making them relatively a one-off creation. Similar to VANS Syndicate, the VANS by KIROIC Spring/Summer 2013 Collection will be limited to select boutiques only.
