You'd be forgiven if you thought this latest Vans Vault release was made in collaboration with Virgil Abloh. The "Cap LX" pack features deconstructed takes on the Sk8-Hi LX, updated with zipper closure, and the Slip-On LX, now featuring laces. Both pairs were created without an assist from the OFF-WHITE founder, though some of the radical design elements would suggest otherwise. After all, Abloh's fingerprints are all over the deliberately misplaced details, including the shifting of Vans' signature red heel badge, as well as the "OFF THE WALL" text on the Sk8-Hi's zipper pull. Each silhouette arrives in Black and Marshmallow colorways. They're are already sold out at Haven, but additional Vans Vault retailers should be taking delivery of the kicks in the coming weeks.
