"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.

Before the spread of the internet, collaboration was different. Information was exchanged gradually, scenes and subcultures grew slowly and often remained confined to their cities. The original sneaker retailers formed at the heart of these subcultures and did more than simply sell shoes. They became meeting points; places for style, art, music, and urban culture to collide.

The END. x Bodega Pack examines adidas’ rich history while simultaneously questioning the future of athletic footwear. Vintage sneaker connoisseurs will be thrilled by the revival of the Haven - a 1970s running classic - which here receives luxurious make over in a soft suede. Another model making a big impression this year is the brand new Iniki Runner, which deliberately toys with the juxtaposition of a classic aesthetic with modern elements such as BOOST™ sole and an ultra-contemporary silhouette.

adidas and the Yoshida Company began life as small, family-run businesses. adidas made sportswear, Yoshida made bags and over the latter half of the 20th century both became giants in their respective fields. Now experts in our industries, together we present a small collection of high quality footwear and bags. It is east meets west; a truly special exchange of ideas.
