Skatewear labels Carhartt and Vans joined forces and created the Carhartt x Vans Authentic shoe. The idea behind this collaboration was to point out the workwear aspect of Carhartt, and at the same time reinterpret Vans’ competences in shoemaking, in one single product. Both brands are known as pioneers in the skate- and streetwear scene. The shoe is available at stores starting this month. The soles are orange, like every Carhartt shoe has. Additional features are a waffle sole, a double-stiched seam and a light padding. Fabrics are a mix of suede and ripstop nylon uppers. The shoe comes in typical workwear colors like black, olive and white.
