The Half Cab is an often overlooked gem in Vans' back catalogue of heavy hitters. It’s heartening to see the endearingly stubby mid-cut silhouette gain favour once more with some of fashion’s leading luminaries – perhaps as a follow-up to Gosha’s recent collection. Continuing the rejuvenation, Seattle-based Maiden Noir turn their astute curatorial hands to the sneaker as part of a pack celebrating their pop-up store within Opening Ceremony’s Omotesando space.
The three-piece pack sees three classic Vans made up in hairy brushed-suede, matched with bitumen black outsoles. The Half Cab drops in bone white, while an Old Skool is coloured forest green and a Sk8-Hi is dunked in indigo. Each piece of the colab will release comfortably ensconced in a special edition dust bag.
The Maiden Noir x Vans Brushed Suede Pack is available from December 10 at the Opening Ceremony in Omotesando.
