Premium Leather Sk8-Hi Reissue
August 29, 2015
DQM will be releasing its Summer 15 footwear collection in collaboration with Vans this Friday, August 7th. Following 2014’s original Square Ones release, this season’s updated pack features Vansguard waterproof technology on a brushed twill upper, and a color story inspired by classic English raincoats.
Made exclusively for DQM, the shoes are inspired by the utility and economy of a basic, what it means for a product to be useful, to be essential or classic. Working towards that idea of a true basic, DQM has paredback Vans’ Old Skool LX style to the very essentials. The shoe has a deconstructed feel with minimal branding, stitched side stripes and stitched eyelets. Constructed in durable but light-weight brushed cotton twill with water-resistant Vansguard treatment, the shoes are available in Black, Nautical Blue and Seneca Rock. Details include neon yellow, light-weight and washable Ortholite insoles for comfort, and flat matching color laces with striped aglets.
Produced in a limited edition, the Square Ones: Vansguard collection will be available in men’s and women’s sizes at The Vans DQM General in SoHo, New York as well as online at dqmnewyork.com, on August 7th.

After one of Boston’s heaviest winters on record, DQM team rider Brian Delaney spent little time getting back in the streets. We proudly present his recent work. Filmed and edited by Kevin Madden.
DQM has produced a special short film to accompany it’s collaboration with Vans and Blue Note Records. Exploring the similarities between music and skateboarding, ‘The Blue Era’ features interviews with the President of Blue Note Records and renowned musician and producer, Don Was, along with the legendary skateboarder and professional contemporary musician, Ray Barbee. The film also features New York skateboarders Chris Keeffe, Jahmal Williams and Brian Clarke.
DQM has collaborated with Vans to produce a very special project with the iconic Blue Note Records. Releasing this Spring and Summer, the project includes two separate, consecutive footwear releases accompanied by a film featuring Don Was, the renowned musician/ producer President of Blue Note Records, and the legendary skateboarder and jazz-inspired contemporary musician Ray Barbee.
Founded in New York in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Max Margulis, Blue Note Records has just celebrated 75 years recording the world’s greatest jazz. Many Blue Note albums, especially from the 1950’s and early 1960’s, are considered to the be the finest jazz recordings of all time, such that the record label name itself is now synonymous with the seminal American music form.
The Blue Note Records project produced by DQM and Vans is inspired by the rhythm and extemporization that exists similarly within music, especially jazz, and skateboarding. Equally characterized by free-form thinking, style and improvisation, the art forms of music and skateboarding share a special connection. Both start with a simple stroke of the guitar, a push on a skateboard, and from there, its flow.
The project includes consecutive Vans footwear releases produced exclusively for DQM; an OG Era LX and an OG Sk8-Hi LX style in two colorways, ‘The Colors’, releasing in store on May 8th, and online on May 11th, and ‘The Blues’, releasing later in June. The shoes are constructed in 6oz canvas yardage printed with a collage featuring cover art from Blue Note’s epic catalog; each pair is unique.
Produced in a limited edition, the Blue Note Records footwear collection will be available in men’s and women’s sizes exclusively in store at The Vans DQM General in SoHo, New York and online at dqmnewyork.com.
DQM will release its Spring 15 collection in store on Saturday, 4th April and online at dqmnewyork.com on Monday, 6th April. The collection includes outerwear, light-weight fleece, pants, woven shirts, t-shirts and hats.

DQM will be releasing its Spring 15 footwear collection in collaboration with Vans next Thursday, March 19th. Made exclusively for DQM, the shoes are inspired by the brownstone row houses of New York and the North East. The history of brownstones, specifically in New York and in the shape of neighborhoods such Harlem and Park Slope in Brooklyn, has a long and celebrated past. Images of tall front stoops, curved entranceways and terraced homes in hues of red, gray and brown, conjures up a lifestyle of days gone by. Featured in hundreds of films by directors from Woody Allen to Spike Lee, brownstone buildings have become an icon, an architectural identifier, of the city.
Drawing from all the natural shades of the Jurassic sandstone material, the collection includes four styles: a Sk8-Hi 46 LX and Old Skool LX in colorways of grays and red brick/ brown. Constructed in a combination of premium leather, suede, nubuck and canvas, the shoes feature riveted brass eyelets with single tortoise glass eyelet detail, waxed flat laces, gum outsole and The General’s signature navy blue heel tab print. A custom, artist-commissioned illustration is printed on the insoles. Built for the East Coast’s Spring weather, the shoes feature water-resistant Scotchgard™ weather protection treatment.
Produced in a limited edition, the ‘Brownstones’ collection will be available in men’s and women’s sizes at The Vans DQM General in SoHo, New York and online at dqmnewyork.com on March 19th.
