DQM for Vans: The Halves

DQM released its Spring 16 footwear collection in collaboration with Vans Friday, February 26th. The collection inlcudes an OG SK8-Hi LX and an OG Style 36 LX, both produced in all black and all white premium leather color ways. Made exclusively for DQM, the shoes are inspired by a study in minimalism, and in contrasts and transitions: two parts of one, light and dark, black and white, and the gray areas.

The shoes combine a feeling of minimalism, with refined, pared-back styling and a completely monotone palette, with a feeling of luxury, fabricated in soft, super premium full-grain leather and featuring quilted leather tongues and gold foil printing on cork insoles. They have a deconstructed look with minimal branding, simple punched eyelets and high-density printed side-stripes. The shoes feature ‘The General: DQM for Vans’ branding on the insoles and ‘DQM’ logos at the heel tabs.

Produced in a limited edition, “The Halves” collection will be available in men’s and women’s sizes exclusively at The Vans DQM General in SoHo, New York on Friday, February 26th.
