We told you it was coming, and today we present the upcoming Vans x The North Face collection in its entirety.
The landmark collaboration, which joins two brands who are considered to be amongst the very best in their respective fields, includes a series of weatherized heritage Vans sneakers accompanied by one of The North Face's staple outwear pieces.
First up is the Desert Chukka MTE LX. Available in "Black," "Hale Navy," and "Toast" colorways, this model sees the Vans Desert Chukka undergo a winter-ready upgrade in the form of a gusseted tongue to keep debris from getting inside, Cosmo Comfort heat technology, a reversed waffle lug outsole for improved traction, and water-repellant uppers. In other words, these are ready to take on almost anything that stands in their way. The Desert Chukka MTE LX is priced at $130.
Similarly, the Sk8-Hi MTE LX, which is available in "Black," "Blue Graphite/Surf the Web," and "Deep Teal/Toast" makes use of the same technologies but adds a waterproof HydroSeal membrane for boot-like protection. The Sk8-Hi MTE LX retails for $120.
Rounding out this collection is a new style of The North Face's Nuptse down jacket which has been outfitted with Vans' signature checkerboard print. Retail for the Nuptse is $300.
The full Vans x The North Face collection will arrive at select retailers on October 31. For further details, visit the Vans Vault site here.
