Hailing from Long Beach, California, Proper know a thing or two about classic Americana. Their latest colab with Vans, a fellow So-Cal institution, harnesses the best of the west with some minimalist styling and primo materials. The collection contains three of Vans' most recognisable silhouettes – the Old-Skool, Sk8-Hi and Slip-On – each one in a simple colourway with a unifying focus on quality. The uppers have been produced with American buffalo leather, strong and soft with a uniquely pronounced grain. Perforated Jazz Stripes and embossed branding add sophistication to each model, while the heavily textured leather lends a rugged yet refined finish.
The Proper x Vans ‘Tatanka’ pack will be available from August 12 at Proper.
