A year ago, DQM teamed up with Vans for the “Square Ones” footwear collection, featuring a design scheme that went back to the basics. The followup is similarly inspired by the fundamentals, though this project centers around just one Vans silhouette, showcasing three colorways updated with Vansguard waterproof technology. Made exclusively for DQM, the Vans Old Skool LX has an upper constructed from brushed twill, finished in a color story inspired by classic English raincoats. A deconstructed sensibility sees each colorway — Black, Nautical Blue and Seneca Rock — imbued with a deconstructed feel with minimal branding, stitched side stripes and stitched eyelets. Rounding out the details are neon yellow lightweight and washable Ortholite insoles, along with flat matching color laces with striped aglets. The limited edition “Square Ones: Vansguard” collection launches August 7th and will be available in men’s and women’s sizes at The Vans DQM General in NYC, as well as online.
