Out of the five releases we’ve seen so far in the Vans Vault x Major League Baseball “Opening Day Collection”, four have consisted of designs honoring American League teams while just one pair was seen representing the National League. Trying to even out the squad a little bit comes the Vans Vault Authentic LX “Washington Nationals” which joins the Atlanta Braves Authentic LX on the National’s side.
To match the accompanying Washington National’s Majestic jersey, the Authentic LX was coated with a light grey throughout the leather base with a navy blue pinstripe wrapping around the top of the white sole. Navy blue comes into the picture once again on the lining and in the form of a thin outline around the red Washington Nationals insignia on the heel. A set of white eyelets, with a pair of navy blue eyelets at the very top, adds a touch of contrast to the tonal upper while a red Vans tag balances things nicely.
The Vans Vault Authentic LX “Washington Nationals”, and the authentic Majestic jersey are limited to a total of 12 pieces and both will go on sale April 5th, 2010 exclusively through Commonwealth.
