This fall, Vans is excited to team up once again with the masterminds at Alltimers to release a capsule collection featuring two custom colorways of the Sk8-Mid Pro LTD, as well as a T-shirt, beanie and jacquard sweater. Born of fate, and reading like a love story between these two fun-loving, quintessential skate brands, this collaboration is all about mischievous indulgence.
Lush, jacquard checkerboard knits and impish cartoon characters are sprinkled throughout this capsule, which was inspired by Alltimers’ favorite vintage Looney Toons sweater. The team at Vans took that input and upgraded it, creating a cute-but-cool blue dragon character and a party animal dog mascot to adorn the collection.
Both custom colorways of the Sk8-Mid Pro LTD boast asymmetrical designs, with checkerboard jacquard panels on the medial sides, offset by embroidered depictions of the dog character on each inner ankle. Tinted, translucent sidestripes make it appear as if one’s viewing the checks through the blurry visage of Alltimers’ signature martini glass logo. The lateral panels of each shoe come in plain canvas with a clean, clear sidestripe and a small blue dragon character embroidered on each outer ankle.
Available November 30 exclusively at Pro Skate LTD accounts that carry Vans and Alltimers, the Sk8-Mid Pro LTDs also feature:
UltraCush HD sockliners
Duracap underlays in high-wear areas
Alltimers martini logo deboss on the heel counter
Alltimers martini logo on the sockliner
Premium suede overlays
Vans Pro Skate vulcanized rubber outsoles
The capsule also includes a custom jacquard beanie bearing the dragon character on the back, the dog on the front, and a translucent Alltimers patch on the cuff. Rounding out the collection is a classic-fit graphic T-shirt, and a lightweight jacquard sweater featuring the Alltimers’ martini logo, the dog and dragon characters, and custom floral imagery on the right shoulder.
