We’re only three weeks into the new year, and the Vans x Öctagon is the second minimalist release already. Seeing as 2017 was stuffed to the brim with way-out collaborations, it’s refreshing to see the trend change a little: our wardrobes look like an adorned Pentecostal ox got jammed into a meat grinder, and we figure the time’s right to cut back on the crazy colors and wacky materials. If you feel like we do, Öctagon and Vans have just the stuff for you: their first-ever collaborative effort produced a minimalist Slip-On Pro, which features a quality leather upper, an UltraCush HD cushioning for ultimate impact absorption, and the Öctagon octagon (duh) printed on the heel counter. If Öctagon’s to be believed and we’re actually gonna be ruled by dystopian machine overlords at some point in the future, they might as well buy their shoes from us. Don’t judge us. We’ve got bills to pay. You can buy the Öctagon x Vans Slip-On Pro at our web store and at our shop in Frankfurt from January 20.
