Cloth Surgeon X Vans X Offspring | Launch | 4.11.16

Vans have joined forces with us and London based streetwear brand clothsurgeon to create a premium crafted Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, launching exclusively with Offspring at Selfridges in store and online on Friday 4th November.

Combining the passions and aesthetics of all three partners, the shoes are the culmination of a truly collaborative project. Centred around two iconic Vans silhouettes, the focus of the project was to create something unique, taking inspiration from British menswear design details and maintaining an emphasis on quality.

With clothsurgeon designer Rav Matharu’s nostalgic love for the movie ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ as a starting point and the design references, heritage and philosophies that emanate from Vans, Offspring and clothsurgeon’s combined creative history, the outcome captures all of this as well as their mutual obsession and love for beautiful footwear.

Using luxury veg tan hide and soft suedes for a premium execution and ice sole with the iconic Vans checkerboard, the shoes also feature a gimping detail that runs around the midsole as a homage to British shoe heritage. Whilst zig zag detailing is taken from one of clothsurgeon’s most celebrated silhouettes, the MA-1.

The bespoke side of the clothsurgeon brand is then encapsulated by the insole and box sleeve, which are scattered in patterns of their staple bomber jacket, finished with a cropped garment bag to take the shoes away. It is a conscious effort to merge the two worlds of streetwear and Savile Row.

Offspring’s Aman Tak commented on the collaboration: “We wanted to create a shoe that maintained Vans DNA, but merged three worlds of skate, streetwear and luxury together. Three things that each of us stand for in our respective fields and I think that’s exactly what we’ve achieved.”

Limited quantities of the unique shoes are available at our Offspring concession in Selfridges, online and in-store, from tomorrow.
