Patta x Vans Old Skool collection

by Henrik Buzzi

Following up on the 2015 Japan-exclusive Patta x Beams x Vans Old Skool "Mean Eyed Cat", Patta has once again teamed up with Vans for another collaboration project, this time with a wider release. While the original "Mean Eyed Cat" came in an all black colorway, the 2017 edition will be available in two versions: true white and black coffee. Both colors combine premium suede and canvas materials on the shoes’ uppers, leather signature "jazz" striping, and feature the "Mean Eyed Cat" text on the midsole and Patta Script Logo printed across the side panels. Every pair is finished off with Team Patta laces. The Patta x Vans Old Skool collection is set to release in store on  May 27, and online at from Monday May 29.
