The Vans Vault x MLB Opening Day Collection may have the floor right now with previews of new designs surfacing each day but there’s a lot more then just that going on behind the scenes at Vans. Continue their friendship they started a couple years ago Vans and Carhartt joined forces to produce a couple new Authentic’s to add their co-branded items together.
In a similar fashion to the Halfcabs and Chukka’s released in 2008 the trio of Authentic’s sport uppers constructed from durable workwear materials Carhartt is most notable for. Three color options are shown and set to release – black, khaki and a dark green – with all three sitting atop white soles. Throwing in a little branding on their own the Carhartt name has been added to the tongue tag, rubber stamp on the heel, on the reverse side of the Vans tag on the upper and finally on the insoles. Oh yea, there’s also the box which is black and includes “Carhartt x Vans” across the top.
It’s unclear at this time whether or not the sneakers will touch down in the States but it’s being reported that they are expected to release in Europe around August. Via: tenisufki
