Vans Vault x UBIQ “Three Tides Tattoo” Footwear Collection

The Philadelphia-based shop UBIQ created a unique look for their upcoming collaboration with Vans Vault. The shop takes us on a journey to Osaka, Japan to Three Tides Tattoo shop and the work of Hiroshi Hirakawa. UBIQ wanted to incorporate classic Japanese art into the design of the Vans Vault. The Sk8-Hi LX and the Era LX silhouettes will be featuring Hiroshi Hirakawa’s artwork inspired by Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” which is a genre of traditional Japanese painting and printmaking originally depicting the pleasure-seeking urban lifestyle of the Edo period.    On both styles, you’ll find a depiction of a samurai on a Vans cargo ship confronting a mountain dragon looming in the sky. On the Sk8-Hi LX you’ll find the illustration on a canvas mid-panel fixed between black suede, whereas the full scenery can be viewed on the allover print of the low-top canvas upper of the Era LX. The box in which both of the UBIQ x Vault by Vans shoes come in is also fully covered in the same artwork. Make sure to check out the collection at UBIQ’s online shop dropping November 9.
