L.A. based imprint Noon Goons is rapidly making a name for itself with its skate and surf subculture tinged takes on high quality menswear basics. Their shared subcultural heritage, geographical proximity and elevated reinterpretation philosophy makes Noon Goons’ collaboration with Vault by Vans a natural fit.
Three pillars of the Vans archive, the Sk8-Hi, Style 36, and Classic Slip-On feature understated, luxe inspired takes on the signature all-over print styles that have are synonymous with Vans. The Sk8-Hi is outfitted in white leather, with a subtle, tonal, embossed snakeskin pattern, and contrasting black leather jazz stripe. The Style 36 keeps the snakeskin motif, while reversing the colorway, and the Slip-On opts for a rich, velvet textured upper, with leopard print sockliners. All three pairs feature Noon Goons embroidery at the heels, in the west-coast’s favored gothic script style.
