Vans x Dime AW16 Capsule


Almost a year to the day since Vans and Dime unveiled their popular Slip-On Pro model to the world, the pair come together once again to present a new three-piece capsule, which sees reworks of the classic Old Skool and the lesser known Fairline model. 

Starting with the popular 90's silhouette, the Fairline looses some of its iconic bulky look, stripped out from the inside out and updated with performance features to help combat the rigours of today’s uncompromising action sports standards. Arriving in a "Dream Blue", the icy rework features a tonal puffy sidestripe on the side panels and custom moulded Dime logo on the tongue, with a hardwearing suede applied to the entirety of the upper. All of this sits on top of a Vans’ Pro Lite Cupsole construction and Vans’ Ultracush HD sockliner to ensure a comfortable ride. Rounding off the capsule is two clean takes of the ever popular Old Skool Pro silhouette, offered up in a 'Marshmallow White" and "Blue Nights" colour options, both pairs feature tonal branding and stark white lacing, which compliment the mid sole. All three pairs feature translucent outsoles, with Dime branding on the bottom of the Old Skools.

 Bryan, Warehouse Manager of Dime had this to say on the release...

 ‘’We are overjoyed that the good folks at Vans let us bring back their timeless Fairlane silhouette for this project. Intense physical activity can really make your feet sweat and it’s important to stay cool. The objective here was to build the iciest kicks ever,”

 The Vans x Dime AW16 Capsule will be landing at select European retailers on October 8th, including Welcome Skate Store and Slam City Skates
