Vans and Publish Brand ready the Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE for release this coming Thursday, December 18, on Publish Brand’s online shop. Unveiled earlier this season, the highly anticipated Breton Boot SE will be available for purchase through www.publishbrand.com starting tomorrow at 10am PST/1pm EST.
With nearly five decades in existence, deep roots in music, a DIY attitude and California lifestyle, Vans has left their footprint in global street culture and fashion. With the same passion and forward-thinking mentality, Publish Brand has created a platform for the new generation. A complementing vision and mutual admiration allowed for a natural collaboration between brands. The result: the Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE.
The Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE pulls styling cues from sportswear and menswear to present a premium execution of Vans’ deluxe silhouette. Outfitted in water-resistant ballistic nylon and built atop a Vibram® Cristy outsole, the collaborative boot seamlessly instills athletic and outdoor influences into its aesthetic. Hued in black from the bottom-up, the minimalist colorblocking bares a sharp contrast at the ankle as the embossed leather heel paneling and midsole clip are highlighted in stark white. Above the heel panel, reflective 3M™ ankle strips are secured to ensure added visibility at night while neoprene collar construction and a full-length UltraCush™ HD footbed deliver a comfortable, all-day wear.
The Vans OTW x Publish Brand Breton Boot SE retails for $160 USD and comes with two sets of laces and a custom shoe bag. Additional stockists releasing the collaboration later this month include Fice and Sneaker Politics.
