City-Styled Skate Shoes

The DQM x Vans 'I Love NY' Adds a Classic Twist to a Skater Shoe

— April 10, 2013 — Fashion
Many of the world's most prolific and talented skateboarders are from New York City, so it's only fitting that the DQM x Vans 'I Love NY' Collection sees the likes of a classic skate shoe company like Vans teaming up with a well-known New York skate apparel brand like DQM to bring us these gems of city-styled apparel.

Milton Glasner's 'I Love NY' logo is a world renowned symbol that's partially responsible for many people's visual association of NYC's. Since it's creation, the I Love NY logo has made appearances on nearly every article of clothing you could imagine, but never before have boarders been able to actually skate in shoes that embody their passion for the Big Apple.

Coming in both low and high-cut options, the DQM x Vans 'I Love NY' collection are made out of creamy white canvas printed with Glasner's infamous NYC symbol.
