TH 138 MID LX
After focusing on texture and proportion, and animal prints on his most recent Vault by Vans capsules, artist and designer Taka Hayashi's latest effort heads in a utilitarian/military inspired direction.
A mixed textile (ripstop, twill, plain and herringbone weaves) upper with suede, and leather accents, in tones of olive drab, gives off the familiar, twin airs of military influence, reliability and timelessness, while the signature, thick rubber outsoles are augmented by ridged, rubber midsole panels. A reflective, morse code emblazoned patch, reading "Vans Off the Wall," at the medial ankle reinforces the military aesthetic, while adding a unique visual twist to a well established motif.
