END. x Vans “Nordic Wool” OG Old Skool LX

by Henrik Buzzi

As winter draws closer and we look to rejuvenate the body and mind, it’s time to master the art of home hibernation. Now the slate-grey skies and notoriously bleak weather has arrived, overindulge in comfort and hunker down in warmth using the art of Hygge; a calm togetherness and celebration of life’s simple pleasures. The END. x Vans ‘Nordic Wool’ pack merges sustainability, fashion and the Danish way of living into a shoe that works well on the sidewalk and skateboard.

A wholesome concept to fight winter blues; embracing Hygge {hue-gah} is the secret to happiness; a ritual that creates a sense of security, familiarity and kinship. Welcoming well-being into the long dark winters, the importance of togetherness is illuminated by the END. x Vans Old Skool collaboration. Evolving a skate classic with birds-eye woollen uppers and a natural leather side stripe, a gentle flicker of candlelight evokes a sense of nostalgia – like a blanket draped over the sofa. Marshmallow hues and a gum rubber outsole round off the hyggelig atmosphere, like mallows roasting over a crackling log fire.

Taking Hygge to the great outdoors, embark on long walks with cosy serenity at your feet. Available in Black and Marshmallow colourways, the END. x Vans Old Skool is housed in bespoke birds-eye decorated packaging. Integral parts of Vans’ DNA are matched with Scandinavian culture, producing a variation of the side-striped icon that lives the Danish way. The END. x Vans ‘Nordic Wool’ pack is now available for registration on END. Launches.
