BILLY’S TOKYO and Vans have become near indispensable partners for one another, as the Japanese retailer is the first in line for striking exclusives and the rare but unique collaboration. Next up — in what is an extension of their underlying retro theme — is the OG Sid LX whose general shape harks to the trends of the late 70s to early 80s. Simple in construction, the pair seemingly borrows little from adjacent models other than the sole, but even then the forthcoming offering adds dual foxing stripes to its side walls. Uppers, which entirely shape out of sturdy suede fabrications, stitch aggressively along the eye stay, the side profile, heel, and everything in between, leaving just enough room for the circled “V” logo. Arriving in both neutral and bold varieties, the silhouette either approaches versatility in a clean black or eccentricity via an all-over leopard. Grab a detailed look at both right here and expect the imprint to release their stock come March 28th.
In other news, the Saucony Jazz 4000 is coming back.
