Rain Is No Match for the Humidity x Vans Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX ColabRelease: 7 October 2022
New Orleans skate store Humidity have been a fixture of the scene since the 1990s, and their formidable track record has delivered a number of killer sneaker collaborations. Their next effort may be their most hardcore yet, giving rise to the Vans Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX. The longer-than-standard model name only gives away a fraction of its spec list.
The GTX designation means that these Half Cabs are indeed lined with GORE-TEX waterproof, breathable technology – particularly useful for a store situated in, and literally named, Humidity. The Sentry component seems to point towards the upgraded build of the upper and sole, which includes cleated rubber tread and ripstop inserts. Finally, the Vans Skate label means this pair is purpose-built for deck use and boasts additional padding in the insoles alongside more durable materials. This is all hidden behind a ‘Triple Black’ colourway with minimal red branding on the tongue depicting the Humidity store name.
The Humidity x Vans Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX releases via Humidity on October 7, followed by a wider drop at select retailers on October 19.
