Outlier, the creators of finely tailored performance wear, from the international hipster outpost of Williamsburg is on point in collaboration with those skateboard-turned-lifestyle designers out in California, Vans OTW. What could have been a clash of the coasts resulted in a brilliant meeting of the minds. Using the urban Bedford design as the canvas, Outlier imparts their classic muted color schemes with a stormy slate-grey upper created from the super-breathable, water-resistant, windproof Supermarine cotton. Cutting through the middle of this storm-cloud grey is a lighter contrast of premium grey suede paneling traversing from the heel to the tongue. You get the usuals in the vulcanized rubber outsole and Vans tagging on the side – but sure enough the tongues sport the Outlier Blackswan on the right, and the Supermarine airplanes on the left.
Whether it’s a face-off with the sidewalk, boardwalk, skate-park, or Berry Park these kicks are ready. Wear ‘em with jeans, khakis, NYCO SLIMS, or the NEW OGs; these sneakers can do it all. Just don’t sleep on these guys, they drop August and are sure to be cleaned out quick.
