Can you hear the thumps and deep bass of the Pow-wow drums? We stumbled across these two different pairs of shoes with strong native inspirations and vibes over at one of our haunts, Oki-ni.
The first, the Vans U TH-LO LX Taka Hayashi x Pendleton Pack Trainers, is a slip-on mashup between Japanese designer Taka Hayashi and famous Oregon wool outfitters Pendleton. These low-top trainers are made out of leather and wool with a vulcanized rubber sole, and will ensure that your feet fit right in the next time you head out to the Hopi Reservation to take in a Sun Dance.
The other pair featured below is the Vans Vault Sk8-Hi LX which has a beautiful scarlet canvas quarter embroidered with white Inca flowers. It also boasts a green suede toe detailed with stitching and perforation, and are rounded out with a green leather lace.
Perfect find for the guy in your life who likes to let his feet do lots of talking.
