Vans OTW Advocate Chris Kong teams up with our design crew this holiday season for his custom take on the Alomar. Renowned for his vinyl creations under his Garageworks Industries and Made by Monsters labels, Kong presents his first footwear collaboration in a colorway influenced by ‘80s skate and BMX culture. The bold red and blue color palette is inspired by board and bike graphics of the era; lightning bolt embroidery is a tie back to old school biking decals and faded checkerboard midsole detail pays homage to the first checkered silhouettes from Vans. Kong instills action sports functionality into his model’s construction as well, utilizing premium pig suede and ballistic nylon throughout the uppers for upgraded durability, 3M reflective tongue and heel tabs for night riding and lace covers for added protection while cycling. The limited edition Vans OTW x Chris Kong Alomar ships this November to select OTW stockists. Get a closer look at this collab after the jump!
