WTAPS, a menswear label from Japan that offers some of the best in contemporary streetwear styles, joined with Vans for the 'Mono Python' collection.
Coming in sizes for men and women alike, the 'Old Skool' and 'Sk8-Hi' models that the American skate brand is well-known for are covered in a thick scaly material. This gives the sneakers further dimension, with the synthetic snakeskin helping to diversify the all-white colorways of the Mono Python collection.
The scaly texture is largely uninterrupted on the uppers, apart from Vans' branding, which decorates the sides in a minimal manner. In order to make the sneakers more comfortable for consumers over a longer period of time, Vans and WTAPS inserted an 'UltraCrush sockliner' inside as well.
