Vault by Vans will once again be teaming up with Brain Dead for two footwear drops this fall. This marks the third partnership between the two. This time around they debut two back-to-back releases that will launch exclusively via Brain Dead this June and be available globally this July.
Releasing exclusively via Brain Dead on June 14, Brain Dead chose the OG Half Cab LX and OG Lampin LX. First debuted in 1992, the Half Cab celebrates 30 years of resilience and its impact on skateboarding and culture at large. The OG skate model has been remastered using a mix of canvas and suede uppers with white tonal stitching. The outsole has been inverted for a tonal black with a white foxing stripe. The OG Lampin LX is available in a tri-tone suede execution with a classic white sole and blue foxing stripe. Each of the silhouettes are finished with white contrast stitching and multi-colored eyelets. The first installment of the Vault by Vans x Brain Dead collection will be available on June 10th at Brain Dead Studios Fairfax, and Brain Dead Studios Harajuku locations and online at wearebraindead.com on June 14th.
On July, the second drop brings both brands together to reimagine the iconic checkerboard – a patter that has become synonymous with Vans. Inspired by timeless and practical design, the Brain-Dead team chose the OG Authentic LX and the OG Slip-On LX as their canvas. Allowing the silhouettes to speak for themselves, the Brain Dead design team injected the brands signature head logo into the heart of the design to pay homage to tradition while redesigning it.
Look for the second installment of the Vault by Vans x Brain Dead collection to be available on July 5th at 10am PST at wearebraindead.com, Brain Dead Studios Fairfax, Brain Dead Studios Harajuku and will be available at select Vault by Vans retailers globally on July 9.
