After being teased earlier this week, Vans has officially revealed its upcoming collection with streetwear label Brain Dead. The two are no strangers as they've previously reworked models such as the OG Old Skool LX. Now the duo explores the OG Half Cab LX, OG Lampin LX, OG Authentic LX and OG Slip-On LX in their latest collaboration.
This time around, two different approaches are used to outfit the classic Vans silhouettes. The OG Authentic LX and OG Slip-On LX are presented in a reworked iteration of Vans' signature checkered pattern, utilizing Brain Dead's head logo throughout. The remaining two models opt for color blocking on the uppers. Additional detailing in the collection includes a Brain Dead x Vans logo at the insole and tonal "BRAIN DEAD" text on some of the midsoles.
The launch for the Brain Dead x Vault by Vans collection is split in two parts. Beginning with the OG Half Cab LX and OG Lampin LX, the first two pairs are available starting June 10 at Brain Dead Studios Fairfax and Brain Dead Studios Harajuku with an online drop on June 14 via Brain Dead. Rounding out the rollout, the OG Authentic LX and OG Slip-On LX will be available via Brain Dead, Vans and select Vault by Vans stockists.
