Named for a 1994 album by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, our latest collaboration with Vans merges the classic checkerboard pattern with a hallmark material from the heyday of ‘70s and ‘80s punk-driven London fashion, mohair. In this, we bridge the gap between luxury design houses and Two-Tone style.
Two OG SK8-Hi, an OG Authentic, and an OG Old Skool NS LX, are dressed in mohair to give Van’s classic checkerboard a fresh perspective. Each colorway honors Vans’ legacy print in new articulations. Design details from the custom boxes draw from the Sex Pistols, poster boys of the hardcore punk era from which mohair transformed from pedestrian wear to aspirational fashion.
The Concepts x Vans UA OG SK8-Hi LX Mohair (Flame Scarlet/White) features:
Casual shoes in a high-top silhouette with mohair uppers.
Rubber outsole with waffle tread.
- 2 Sets of Laces: White & Green
The Concepts x Vans “Question the Answers” collection launches October 7th exclusively on cncpts.com, CNCPTS Boston, CNCPTS NYC and CNCPTS Dubai.
