Californian retailer Blends is going in again with Vans Vault, this time collaborating on the Quilted Leather Runner. These things are mean! The blacked out leather upper has been embroidered with a diamond pattern all over – save for the Jazz-Stripe and heel panels – to look like something that could survive a fall from a Harley, get up and cause a road rage incident. The aggressive sawtooth edge of the outsole lurking below is ready to dig into any surface it encounters. Snapping back to reality, the shoe is held down on a soft white midsole and Ultrucush insole so they don’t wear as hard as they look.
You can get the Blends x Vans Quilted Leather Runner from June 25 over on the Blends web store.
