Texas based retailer Nice Kicks has teamed up with Vans to produce a special edition pack labelled ‘The Duel’.
Inspired by the cowboys of the wild west, The Duel was inspired by childhood memories of Nice Kicks founder and publisher, Matt Halfhill.
“The oiled leather and heel cap represent my first pair of boots, as well as the saddle and reins on a horse. The red Vans Vault logo on the back is a tribute to both the Nice Kicks logo and the Texas flag. The raw denim and antique brass further underscore the Western influence of the collaboration,” says Halfhill.
The pack will feature the Vans Era LX and Sk8-Hi styles, and will be released exclusively at the Nice Kicks shop in Austin, Texas on September 14. An online release will be available the following day at ShopNiceKicks.
