Korean brand WOOYOUNGMI returns for the Spring/Summer 2018 season with a collaborative series with footwear label Vault by Vans. This marks Vault by Van's first collaboration with a Korean label and the series is comprised of two different offerings. Both of the footwear silhouettes take on the classic Slip-On structure and boasts two colorways. There are the options of either 'Royal Blue' or 'Deep Red' across the uppers constructed from full-grain leather materials.

The highlighted detail of the shoes is the double toned branding of WOOYOUNGMI that adorns the midsoles. Another unique detail of the shoes are the paisley print patterns drawn by hand, which is a frequent design by the Korean label found on the footbeds. The two shoes are set to launch on June 2nd at Vans' retail locations in Seoul and WOOYOUNGMI flagship locations.
