The Vault by Vans x Patta ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ pack originated as a token of appreciation for Patta’s connection with Beams in Japan. The first drop came in 2015 before a follow-up collection released in 2017. The latest collaborative capsule is built around timeless Vans silhouettes such as the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi. The footwear is executed in true Patta fashion with detailing on the taping as well as on the upper of the shoe.
Vans’ beginnings as a family-owned brand in 1966 that earned the trust of their local scene in California before eventually growing into a globally recognized name resonated with Patta. The Dutch brand’s rise was similarly based on supporting their local scenes in music, sports and art before they garnering international recognition. Their mutual support during this collaboration resulted in the Mean Eyed Cats capsule.
The Vault by Vans x Patta ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ collection features apparel pieces as well as selected signature footwear models that all release at BSTN on Friday, July 23rd. Pick up your favorites via the button below!
