Vans x Horween Leather Company Sneaker Collection
Vans presents their latest Collaboratory Video Feature, where they go behind the scenes at the Horween Leather Company, in existence since 1905. Horween remains one of the very few leather companies that are still based in the US and they are more popular than ever. Vans has worked on a series of sneakers with Horween, using their high quality leathers. Several boots, but also Vans classics, such as the Mountain Mid and the Era are part of the collaboration, that will be coming to stores in the following months. It also looks like long time Vans collaborator, Japanese designer Taka Hayashi, worked on this project. Watch the video, including an interview with the Horween President and a tour of the factory, here below.
