Both Vans and Brooks have celebrated anniversaries this year: Vans have been Off The Wall since 1966 and Brooks have been The Best for Riding since 1866. To commemorate, they’ve joined up to release a collection of accessories.
From the press release: Brooks England and Vans’ premium label, Vault by Vans have united to release a Limited Edition Collection of Brooks Accessories and Vans footwear built for riding.
In a year where both brands celebrate significant milestones – Brooks’ 150th and Vans’ 50th anniversary – the two come together for their second collaboration, blending classic design with quality craftsmanship to create the utmost sophistication in footwear and bicycle accessories.
The Brooks x Vault by Vans partnership presents laser-etched artwork from designer Taka Hayashi across the TH OG Sk8-Hi LX and TH OG Classic Slip-On LX. Hayashi’s imagery and intricate detailing extend from footwear into a deluxe set of Brooks Accessories consisting of the Barbican Shoulder Bag and Swift Brooks Saddle.
Since 1866, Brooks England has been constructing leather goods in Smethwick, England. Celebrating their 150th anniversary alongside Vans’ 50 years brings forth the best in design and quality from two industry leaders while honoring their respective styles and histories.
The collection will be available for purchase December 3rd 2016 at select stockists across the globe. For more information about the Brooks England website or Vans’ website.
