The Vans Vault shoe company has been known for its wicked fashion collaborations, and the Taka Hayashi ‘Engineer Boot’ represents the latest of these ventures. Deviating from the usual Vans footwear collections, these classic menswear items are encased with authentic leather and a crepe sole.
A combination of dark green, brown and off-white stitching, the Engineer Boot evinces a certain rugged and rustically-oriented style, a perfect fashion fit for any mod male worker. The metal buckles further serve to create an official demeanor about the shoe, and are also a functional feature as they allow for individually-tailored adjustments to be made.
This practical line of Vans footwear also reinforces the distinct nature of Taka Hayashi’s portfolio. Known for his raw approach to design, his use of suede and leather in the Engineer Boot further solidifies his fondness for organic products.
