This October, Vans and The North Face come together to create some of the most technical Vans products to date. Packaged together in the Vault by Vans x The North Face Holiday 2015 Collection, this partnership pushes the design boundaries of heritage Vans silhouettes with the technical, weatherized features The North Face brand is well-known for. The seven-piece offering includes three installments of the Vans Sk8-Hi MTE LX and Desert Chukka MTE LX silhouettes as well as a collaborative take on The North Face Nuptse jacket. For the Desert Chukka MTE LX, options include Black, Hale Navy and Toast colorways alongside the Sk8-Hi MTE LX in Black, Blue Graphite/Surf the Web and Deep Teal/Toast executions. Both silhouettes are reconstructed utilizing gusseted tongues, reversed waffle lug outsoles, CosmoComfort heat insulation, and The North Face's winterGRIP and water-repellant leather and suede uppers. The Desert Chukka also sees fleece lining while the Sk8-Hi picks up a HydroSeal integrated membrane for superior weather resistance.
The Vault by Vans x The North Face Holiday 2015 Collection also introduces a new take on the Nuptse Jacket, bringing the coveted checkerboard pattern to a signature outwear staple. Outfitted in a tonal black-on-black print, the Nuptse Jacket is treated with a durable water-repellant coating, lined with down insulation and double-layered in taffeta padding. The Vault by Vans x The North Face collection retails from $120 to $300 USD and launches globally on October 31, 2015 at select retailers.
