Local skate shop SHOWROOM breaks new ground in a ‘first of it’s kind’ collaboration with iconic footwear brand Vans, releasing the two-piece collection, 21:30.
Building on the icons Sk8 Hi Pro and Old Skool Pro silhouettes, the 21:30 collection is designed with the night skater in mind. Both sides live and breathe skate culture, with many in the SHOWROOM community taking to the pavement via skateboard when the shop closes at 9:30pm, hence the collection’s name.
What gives the collection a life of its own is the coating on the panels which provide an an eye-popping shine thanks to the reflective 3M material. The shoe explodes from the darkness when contacted by direct light, affording its wearer not only style points when executing tricks under blinks of a camera shutter but also safety when skating within the congested cityscape. It’s a design element that poses equal parts form and function.
Sporting a translucent icy outsole and Duracap midsole, both styles showcase a interchangeable velcro sidestripe logo that allow for wearers to switch between a white sidestripe and the signature Vans checkered motif for greater fashion versatility. The right heel sports a debossed Vans x SHOWROOM logo.
The 21:30 collection will be officially in-store from December 9, 2016 onward exclusively at SHOWROOM Kuala Lumpur. Priced at RM329 for a pair of Old Skool & RM359 for a Sk8-Hi. Get yourself a pair of the collection at Showroom Online Store or be the first to have the shoes this 9th December at Showroom KL.
