I’ve been in love with these since the first pics showed up on the blogs. Originally I wanted to pick them up at KCDC when I was in New York last summer but my suitcase was already filled up with too much stuff. Found them on sale and had to get them. Still kinda bummed it isn’t the black one but this white c/w is still fresh. For the first time in their collaborative series Japanese clothing brand W)Taps got to make a whole new model for Vans (well, actually 3) The BASH stands for Basketball Shoe and hints towards some classic basketball shapes. Not vulcanized, but the famous waffle pattern is still featured on the sole. The heel has ‘Rise Above’ stiched on, I take it as a Black Flag reference. Anyway, stoked on having these.
