Texas based retailer Nice Kicks has teamed up with Vans to produce a special edition pack labelled ‘The Duel’.
Inspired by the cowboys of the wild west, The Duel was inspired by childhood memories of Nice Kicks founder and publisher, Matt Halfhill.
“The oiled leather and heel cap represent my first pair of boots, as well as the saddle and reins on a horse. The red Vans Vault logo on the back is a tribute to both the Nice Kicks logo and the Texas flag. The raw denim and antique brass further underscore the Western influence of the collaboration,” says Halfhill.
The pack will feature the Vans Era LX and Sk8-Hi styles, and will be released exclusively at the Nice Kicks shop in Austin, Texas on September 14. An online release will be available the following day at ShopNiceKicks.

After the recent success of the mesh print Era pack, Kenzo and Vans are back with a new collaboration pack set to drop shortly.
The classic Vans Authentic gets six new Kenzo looks, by covering the upper in stripes and floral patterns with a bright white midsole. The insoles have been stamped with co-randed logos.
Both the Stripes pack and Floral pack will be limited release available to both men and women in select stores this August.
This isn’t the first time we’ve showcased one of Kenzo’s standout collaborations! Check out it’s partnership with furniture brand Kartell on an exclusive edition of the ‘plastics duo’ sofa here.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the model, Vans have teamed up with Paul Rodriguez’ ‘Primitive’ to create this new edition of the Half Cab.
Covered in a solid grey suede, the shoe features cable knit across the collar and tongue. Replacing the regular stitch logo, the ‘Cable Knit’ comes with a brass logo plate on the side to give the shoe a premium look.
Set to drop this weekend, the ‘Cable Knit’ Half Cab will also come with a matching beanie. Find them online at Primitive.
New from the Vans Vault collection is the Era LX Twill Canvas Pack in four different colours.
Using the popular Era style, they boast a premium suede on the toe box and heel, with twill canvas quarter panels, too. Laced up with leather, the Era will feature alternate colours on the outer and instep of the shoe.
The Twill Canvas Pack is set to drop this month.
