After building up hype recently, Vans now unveil the first images of the upcoming LXVI 2012 release. Vans have used their initiative in creating this range specifically offering a lifestyle shoe to cater for its wide customer base.
The result is this slick running shoe, which is officially the lightest men's Vans shoe ever. Check out the full range of colourways after the jump.
Adapting the classic Waffle sole into a thinner, more padded WaffleFlex reminiscent of Nike's Lunarlon sole works perfectly on this silhouette, keeping with Vans' trademark flat foot designs.
The design is essentially a slim Old Skool which, although I admit I was dubious about beforehand, looks great.
I managed to get my hands on a pair of the Navy Blue kicks earlier today to try on and they looked great, not to mention the unbelievable comfort. I was told the different colours will be fairly exclusive, dropping only in select Vans stores across the country, however on closer inspection on the Vans website it appears they will all be made available through Schuh.
The box for these shoes is also pretty swish, standing out from the norm. Sadly I wasn't able to get any pictures to upload onto here.
I strongly advise copping a pair of these; they look and feel great. All will be hitting retailers very soon.
