"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." - C.E.

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA AUGUST 2017: THIS FALL, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RETAILER PROPER COLLABORATES WITH VAULT BY VANS TO CREATE THREE DELUXE VERSIONS OF VANS’ ICONIC FOOTWEAR SILHOUETTES, INCLUDING THE SLIP-ON LX, OLD SKOOL LX, AND SK8-HI LX.

THE TATANKA COLLECTION FEATURES UPPERS CONSTRUCTED FROM HORWEEN AMERICAN BUFFALO LEATHER. BUFFALO LEATHER WAS SELECTED FOR ITS DISTINCT NATURAL GRAIN THAT GETS BETTER WITH AGE AND WEAR. STRONGER THAN TRADITIONAL COWHIDE, AMERICAN BUFFALO LEATHER IS UNEQUALED IN ITS SOFTNESS, STRENGTH, AND DURABILITY. THE USE OF NATURAL HIDES ENSURES THAT NO TWO PAIRS WILL BE THE SAME, COMPLETELY UNIQUE FROM PAIR TO PAIR, FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, AND PANEL TO PANEL.

ALL THREE SILHOUETTES FEATURE SUBTLE CHANGES FROM THEIR PRODUCTION NAMESAKES INCLUDING PERFORATED JAZZ STRIPES, DEBOSSED CO-BRANDED LEATHER TONGUE LABELS, HEAVYWEIGHT COTTON LACES, CO-BRANDED PIGSKIN LINED ULTRACUSH HD DROP-IN FOOTBEDS, FULL PIGSKIN LININGS, FULLY SIPED CLASSIC GUM OUTSOLES, RAW EDGE TONGUE CONSTRUCTION, EMBOSSED OFF THE WALL HEEL TABS, AND HIGH GLOSS FOXING TAPE FINISH.

EACH PAIR COMES DELIVERED IN A C0-BRANDED 10oz CANVAS TOTE BAG, WITH CUSTOM PACKAGING.
