Late 2019, HAVEN debuted their very first collaboration with Vans Vault, a selection that put premium materials first. Now an entire year thereafter, the Canadian boutique is at it again as they present a brand new capsule led by both the Sk8-Hi LX as well as the Old Skool LX.
Effectively mirror reflections of one another, the pairs share the same design and colorways, both hued in an arrangement of dark black and lighter sand. What’s central is the fabrications themselves as the imprint’s penchant for luxury and militaria is imbued through textured hairy suede overlays and an underlying ballistic nylon, respectively. Jazz stripes over top the latter are then ripped off near entirely, leaving behind only its stitch for an extremely minimal interpretation. The heel tab is then blacked out — or better yet, redacted — while the rest of the sole is marked with denotative text and black front bumpers.
Paired with ULTRACUSH soles, the pack is scheduled to release at HAVEN exclusively come September 19th, 11am ET.
In other news, NIGO just revealed a Human Made adidas Tokio Solar collaboration.

In both construction and in colorway, the silhouette has made the “What The” style its own, debuting various takes replete with the DNA of past releases. And while the reveal immediately previous leaned towards...
