DualForces x Vans OTW


VANS approached us to participate in their OTW line as a guest designer for a Holiday 2012 release. We wanted to stay close to the VANS heritage, basing the footwear off the Brenton boot, yet push the design out technologically. We decided on a concept we called “SLOTech™”. The fusion of old and new.

The boot became a nod to an old school jungle boot upper, an old favorite.
Then fused to black suede and a Vibram® sole for comfort on long walks in Tokyo, Paris or LA.

The collaboration also features a bag we developed specifically for the project.
Teaming up with our colleagues at S.O.TECH ,
we took their iconic Mission Go Bag.
