New York’s DQM has teamed up once again with Vans, creating an exclusive collection made up of th Sk8-Hi 46 LX and Old Skool LX silhouettes. Each is done up in a combination of premium leather, suede, nubuck and canvas, offered in a choice of tan or red brick/ brown colorways, paying homage to the brownstone row houses of New York and the American Northeast. Details include riveted brass eyelets with a single tortoise glass eyelet detail, waxed flat laces, gum outsole and The General’s signature navy blue heel tab print. A custom artist-commissioned illustration on the insole completes the look, and water-resistant Scotchgard weather protection makes the shoes ready for the East Coast spring weather. The “Brownstones” collection launches March 19th in men’s and women’s sizes at The Vans DQM General in SoHo, New York and online.
