For Summer 2016, DQM is teaming up with Vans to go back to the beginning of skateboarding, a time that they refer to as skateboarding 101. As the sport came of age in the early '80s, its fashion was influenced by the colors and style of the times, featuring bright colors and flashy graphics. In NYC, meanwhile, the prevailing inspirations came from basketball and hip-hop style. Those basic team colors are now featured on the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue LX "101," built with canvas and premium leather at the side stripe and heel. Details include a nylon tongue facing, cotton terry cloth tongue backing, removable striped ankle strap and the Vans DQM General logos in the footbed and heel tab. Available in three colors -- black, white and navy -- the kicks launch June 18th at The Vans DQM General in SoHo and dqmnewyork.com.
