Patta will release new versions of the Vans Chukka 79 VLT LX and the Style 36 VLT LX this Saturday. This latest collaboration represents the strong British-Jamaican influences on rude boy culture.
The colours of the Chukka 79 VLT LX are a riff on the colours of the Rastafari flag, with the Style 36 TC VLT LX coming in a Spectrum Blue colour way that nods to the Union Jack. The phrase “OUT IN THE STREETS” that sits on the outsole, serves as an homage to reggae artist Ini Kamoze, while also alluding to manning the barricades, protest and counterculture.
Both silhouettes are executed in ballistic nylon, with premium suede details, white contrast stitching and black leather lining. High-density printed Patta branding adorns the heel, while multiple lace tags allow for customisation by the wearer.
The Patta x Vans Chukka 79 VLT LX and Style 36 VLT LX will be available in EU sizes 34.5 up to 47, exclusively at PATTA locations and online from patta.nl at 13:00 CET on Saturday, October 31st. Limited quantities available for early access through the Patta app on Friday, October 30th.
