The words “Vans” and “running shoe” are not ones that go together at all. But alas, now that has changed. The famed skateboarding shoe company has teamed up with Sole Classics to produce the Vans OG Runner Kitchi. The shoe uses bright blue leather and neoprene for the upper, finished with a white midsole. The shoe is inspired by the story of “Kitchi”, where a young boy saves his town by using the Ohio River. The blue colorway is a clear synthesis of this inspiration.
The Sole Classics x Vans OG Runner Kitchi will release on June 25th in-store and online at Sole Classics’ website.
