Japanese independent denim brand FDMTL is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a collaboration with California sneaker brand Vans. Together the two present a Vans Era and a Vans Slip-On, both coming with Japanese patchwork fabric uppers. Different kinds of Indigo dyed fabrics have been used for the uppers of the sneakers, and have been woven together to form beautiful patchwork patterns. The Indigo coloring will wear off over time and as such each sneaker will receive its very own patina. FDMTL branding is placed on the heel of the two sneakers and also on the upper with little tags. You can pre-order the Vans x FDMTL 10th Anniversary “Japanese Patchwork”.
