As Vans celebrates its 50th anniversary and WTAPS approaches its 20th, the two brands team up once again to introduce the "Original Classics" collection, featuring both footwear and apparel. In the former category, there's a trio of OG Authentic LX colorways, each featuring a unique Anaconda-embossed leather upper. They're joined by an OG Sk8-Hi LX, OG Chukka Boot LX and OG Authentic LX, all three of which brings back the coveted Bones motif on dual black and olive colorways. On the apparel side, there's a premium military-inspired jacket, similarly finished in the Bones theme and "Vans #1 Waffle Lovers Club" embroidered across the back.
The Vault by Vans x WTAPS "Originals Classics" collection launches in Japan on August 20. The "Anaconda" Authentics will be available globally on August 27, followed by the "Bones" Chukka Boots on and jacket on September 10.
