Vans and its favourite conspirator DQM connect for a new pack inspired by old world fightin'. The HBT stands for Herringbone Twill, which was the primary material used in the World War II army and marine uniform. That doesn't mean straight-up camouflage though as we've seen so often this year, the Authentics get an 'enzyme' treatment instead, it kinda looks like some goo under a microscope real close. The premium vibes are continued by saltwater patina washed eyelets (we don't really know what that means, either, but it sounds special), leather laces, pigskin flag labels and Vans DQM branding at the insole and heel tab. The Jungle, Desert and Ocean colourways of the HBT Authentic will drop exclusively at The Vans DQM General’s New York, Boston and online stores.
