Appropriately named the ‘First Love’ pack, Vans Vault have gotten in bed with West LA shop Hot Rod to produce what could possibly be the best Vans collaboration of the year so far.
Modelled on the first pair of Vans that the owner of Hot Rod ever received in 1983, the OG Era LX and OG Style 36 LX has been given an even more premium makeover. The upper is comprised of the iconic Vans checkerboard print and ‘Madder Brown Suede’ with the co-branded tongues spelt out with shining gold embroidery.
The initial release on August 16 will be a Friends and Family RSVP-only event, and will be limited to 100 pairs with a full release following on August 17 on Hot Rod’s LA website. If you miss out and live in LA, then you need not worry, there will be a follow up in-store release on August 18 for the OG Style 36 LX only.
