The Vault by Vans division is known for its original releases. Think of denim slip-ons with FDMTL and sneakers in bandanas with Bedwin and the Heartbreakers.

For its latest creation, Vault was inspired by the brand’s iconic surf shoe. The Boot Skoot LX features a neoprene upper, as a benchmark for well-known performance footwear, as well as leather and rubber overlays to improve structure and durability. The waffle sole and a combination of velcro and zipper closures make it both easy to wear and ready to go around town. The avant-garde shoe comes in two colorways, one of which is black with a white leather side stripe, echoing Vans’ iconic Sk8-Hi. The other version is white and features a translucent sole and perforated details for breathability.

The shoes are mainly inspired by classic Vans surf shoe styles like the 5MM Surf Boot 2 Hi and the Vans Colfax Boot. Other brands like Patagonia have capitalized on the utility neoprene style shoe in recent years, for example with their R3 Yulex split-toe ankle boots.

The Vault by Vans Boot Skoot LX will go on sale at select Vault retailers on August 28, including Brooklyn and Manhattan, as well as online.
