The VICTORIA x Vans Half Cab is Inspired by the Urban Jungle of Hong Kong

Playing around with the vibrant city's East-meets-West aesthetic.

Hong Kong is a special place. Not only is it known for its urban jungles, its actual jungles also play a huge role in the city's culture. This unique dichotomy is what inspires the VICTORIA x Vans Half Cab. Founded in 2015, the Hong Kong-based skate brand has always played around with the vibrant city's East-meets-West aesthetic, and they've injected this into this limited edition release.

Crafted from suede, the sides are decorated with a banyan forest-influenced pattern that's complemented by a pair of crisp white laces. Stark black suede wraps around the front of the Half Cab, while bold orange tones adorn the tongue tag and patches, with Half Cab branding stitched onto the laterals, and VICTORIA's logo featuring on the medials. This all sits on top of a blacked out vulcanized rubber midsole and finished off with a gum waffle outsole for durable traction with every step, making these perfect for the skatepark.

The VICTORIA x Vans Skate Half Cab will be available on November 12th. Expected to sell out fast, make sure you keep it locked at Ox Street's dedicated Vans page for your best chance to cop.
