Vans Unveils Latest Iteration of Patchwork Footwear
Tiger Patchwork Collection Incorporates Mixed Materialization on Classic Styles
Vans designers offer new renditions of three classic silhouettes by using traditional patchwork application to express exciting geometric patterns and visual motifs this fall. For the latest drop of the season, the Tiger Patchwork pack remasters the Sk8-Hi, Era and Classic Slip-On by incorporating an innovative variety of color, pattern and mixed materialization.
The upper of each shoe is decorated with a combination of fashionable prints including paisley prints, gingham, checkerboard and a tiger emblazoned motif arranged in a pattern-clashing patchwork design. Each silhouette features a complimentary colorway; however, the sizing and pattern placement on each design is unique making each pair one-of-a-kind. The Sk8-Hi, an elevated version of the legendary lace-up high top, is the hero of the pack. It features seamless overlays of patches that offer an evolved version of patchwork, tied together by the classic Sidestripe, metal eyelets, and padded collar. The Era and Classic Slip-On profiles showcase more pronounced mosaics with visible overlays, drawing in the eye with expressive design aesthetics.
