Vault by Vans and Tokyo cult favorites Wacko Maria team up for a collaborative collection inspired by a shared love for and connection to alternative music subculture. Specifically, the humble record store.
In the days before the entirety of music was available through on-demand streaming, finding what you liked, and discovering something new, required a good deal of real-life legwork. More often than not, the shoes rooted to the ground while sifting through racks, bins, and boxes for copies of rare import singles or obscure favorites were Vans.
Seeing as both collaborative partners represent a lifestyle, not just a label, something head to toe comprehensive is in order. The collection's footwear is accompanied by Wacko Maria's signature, relaxed fit, all-over patterned, spread collar rayon shirts, featuring the same checkerboard label record graphic as the footwear.
