Vans Vault x Notre 5x5 Old Skool LX

Published December 17, 2018

Vans Vault enlists Notre as one of five global retailers—Bows and Arrows, Notre, Slam Jam, VIER and WORKSOUT—to create signature versions of their OG silhouettes.

The Notre OG Old Skool LX makes subtle nods to the rise of the independent boutique as community space and cultural arbiter. Designed collectively, the sneaker features a retro-inspired colorway, tonal textures that pay homage to the asymmetrical color-blocking popularized by brands such as BAPE and ENGINEERED GARMENTS and a white embroidered handshake graphic in the shape of Vans’ signature Sidestripe.
