Patta x Vans Chukka 79 - UA CHUKKA 79 VLT LX
Patta joins forces with Vans yet again, with this latest collaboration representing the strong British-Jamaican influences on rude boy culture.
The colours of the Chukka 79 VLT LX are a riff on the colours of the Rastafari flag, with the Style 36 TC VLT LX coming in a Spectrum Blue colour way that nods to the Union Jack. The phrase “OUT IN THE STREETS” that sits on the outsole, serves as an homage to reggae artist Ini Kamoze, while also alluding to manning the barricades, protest and counterculture.
Both silhouettes are executed in ballistic nylon, with premium suede details, white contrast stitching and black leather lining. High-density printed Patta branding adorns the heel, while multiple lace tags allow for customisation by the wearer.
Canvas upper, rubber sole.
Made in Vietnam.
