It may sound like Vans shoes and Civilware’s outdoor gear couldn’t possibly have anything in common but their new collaboration proves this idea wrong. The Vans X Civilware Service Boot ($110) is a unique blend of urban and rural, a mashup that glorifies the best of both genres.
The winter-ready shoe features uppers made of water resistant pig suede and full grain leather. The tongue is ballistic nylon and the soles are reverse lug vulcanized rubber for a solid grip. Inside, your feet are swathed in a Dri-Lex moisture management lining. The combination makes for a shoe that can hang tough on a skateboard as easily as it can withstand the rigors of the great outdoors.
