Under the Vans umbrella are a number of sub-brands and sneaker lines. From Vault to Syndicate to just regular inline goods, Vans silhouettes are divided and branded for a number of reasons. The next line, OTW, is opening with a bang as the Cali company is using the opportunity to also introduce the Alomar.
The intent of the new line is to take skate style but are not held to the design constraints that would apply for a true skate performance sneaker. This model is based on the Chukka, which can be seen from the ankle down. Premium material, including suede, is used throughout the collection and its current 4 colorways. Expect this shoe to make a splash when it drops in early June.
