After joining forces in 2019 and 2020, Vault by Vans and Canadian specialty store Haven are back for their third collaboration. This time, the duo has developed a technical take on the ‘90s skate classic Lampin sneaker. Though the OG Lampin VLT LX’s name may imply laid-back style, Haven has given it an elevated material upgrade.
The new Vault by Vans x Haven OG Lampin VLT LX features an upper made of water-resistant hairy suede, contrasted by tonal nubuck on the medial midfoot and the heel stripe. The shoe’s interior is geared towards ultimate comfort thanks to a soft pigskin leather lining supported with a cushy padded collar. Dual-branded leather insoles feature ULTRACUSH HD foam that provides a premium feel, both on and off-board. There’s also a laser-etched nubuck brand tab, nodding to the design’s collaborative nature. Down below, Vault by Vans’ signature vulcanized waffle rubber outsoles are embellished with contrasting black foxing and a black heel bumper to complete the details.
The Vault by Vans x Haven OG Lampin VLT LX, which will retail for $150, will release in-store at Haven Toronto and Haven Vancouver as well as on the Haven website on October 23rd.
