Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to introduce a collaboration with Hong Kong-based street fashion brand Madness; A footwear collection that combines Vans Classics with founder, Shawn Yue’s, fine sense of style and design inspiration. Both brands share similar values that encourage and facilitate creativity. The collection leveraged two Vans iconic styles: the SK8-Hi and the SK8-Mid; which are personal favorites of Shawn’s as they cater to different styles and fit everyday urban life with styling ease.
Both the SK8-Hi and the SK8-Mid key elements include grey and blue tones in full suede upper, creating a low profile two-tone effect. The outsole features “all work and no play makes you mad” which comes from the tattoo on Shawn’s hand inspired by the movie “The Shining” – “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. The proportion and the detail of the tongue gusset are specifically made to fit Shawn’s style allowing you to rock with or without shoelaces and the SK8-Hi features an additional zipper in the rear for easy access.
The collection featuring the two different footwear will be exclusively sold at Vans Ion Orchard,#B3-60 and Limited Edition Vault, 313 Somerset. #04-13 priced at SGD129 each.
