Haven Get Tactical with Double Diemme Roccia Vet ColabRelease: 5 December 2020
Canadian boutique Haven are putting their strong collaboration run in 2020 through boot camp with a two-pack of tactical stompers courtesy of Italian experts Diemme. Using the Roccia Vet model as a sturdy foundation, Haven apply their mil-spec-inspired modifications and upgrade the heritage hunting boot into the ultimate urban warrior.
The Roccia Vet’s uppers are dual-layered with buttery nappa leather mudguards that wrap the entire circumference, joined to aniline suede vamps for glove-like fit and protection. The inside is equally luscious thanks to deerskin leather lining and coated insoles. Hardware is bolted on to Haven spec: hiking-inspired D-rings and speed hooks, medial YKK Excella zipper for rapid entry/exit, and XL-sized pull tabs.
Underfoot is equally hardcore. A boot at this level of military precision requires soles from no other than experts in the trade: Vibram. They’ve supplied their all-new Winkler outsole pattern – the thin and flexible lug pattern providing sure-footed traction on both mountainside and sidewalk. The Winkler sandwiches an ergonomic Zeppa NG5 midsole that’s favoured by Diemme. What that means for the average street soldier is all-day comfort and support.
The Haven x Diemme Roccia Vet will release exclusively at Haven on December 5. ‘Black’ and ‘Sand’ colour options will be available to complete the colour-matched mission.
