New Orleans-based Humidity has joined forces with Vans Skateboarding to release a collaborative Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX.
Inspired by (and made to withstand) the ruff and rugged streets of New Orleans’ and its unique climate, the sturdy sneaker can handle everything from a skate session to a covert graffiti mission or an unexpected rainstorm.
Featuring a Blacked-out color scheme, the Humidity x Vans Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX upgrades the classic Half Cab silhouette with a fully waterproof GORE-TEX membrane and a lugged Wafflecup sole. It’s half sneaker and half boot, and it leans further into its tactical-and-technical styling with daisy-chain heel webbing plus reflective boot laces.
The details don’t stop there either, as the upper boasts an embossed Half Cab print and an oversized, reflective GORE-TEX logo that wraps around the heel to let everyone know that you’re not playing around no matter how intense the weather gets. A finishing touch is provided by a fully functional tongue pull with Humidity branding that sits atop the classic Half Cab tongue tag.
Look for the Humidity x Vans Skate Half Cab Sentry GTX to release on Friday, October 7th at Humidity Skate Shop, followed by a wider release on October 19th at select Vans skate shops.
