The spring of 2012 cannot come fast enough after seeing the new Lupe Fiasco for Vans OTW collection. The hip-hop superstar has teamed with Vans to create a new collection of simple and smooth shoes.
The fact that Lupe Fiasco teamed with Vans should come as no surprise to anyone as the rapper has ties with the skateboard scene through his music (see "Kick Push" and "Kick Push II"). What is surprising is the lack of detail and flash in this set of superstar-inspired shoes. Rapper-created shoes are usually a little flashier than most, but the Lupe Fiasco for Vans OTW collection is muted and features simple styling and colors. The toned down colors and materials work great together giving the shoe a natural and more organic look. You can get a sneak peek of the Lupe Fiasco Vans OTW collection here.
