Renowned for its functional apparel and considered designs, New York's Outlier has partnered with Vans OTW to present a retooled version of the Bedford mid-top. The highlight of the build is Outlier's Supermarine Cotton, which is extremely breathable and water resistant, as well as entirely windproof. Woven in a complex weave that tightens and seals when exposed to water, the guys at Outlier describe the fabric as the "pinnacle of cotton technology." Rendered in a neutral grey and applied across the upper with tonal suede overlays, the shoe sits on a vulcanized sole and features custom Outlier branding on the tongue and insoles. Check out a video preview below, and look for the kicks to launch in August.
