Vans x Celtek Collaboration
It's not often you get to see two great companies get together to collaborate on a slew of products ranging from your high-end skate shoe to gloves, mitts and snowboard boots. But long time Vans pro rider Erik Leines did just that. The crew at Vans and Celtek put together one of our favorite collaboration pieces of the season with some styles that feel very celteky to a checkered pattern that screams Off The Wall.

Vans Celtek Boot ($170)
Vans took their classic Hi Standard boot and with the help of the Celtek crew put together a boot that not only looks sleek but will perform like a Vans boot should. The black outer shell contrasts perfectly with the orange and green Celtek stylings. The boot features Vans' Lite Outsole to keep it featherlight and super grippy while the TriFit X Thermal liner uses a dual-density, heat moldable core with Asymmetrical X-Cage to keep your heel locked in at all times.
If your worried about impact, the V2 footbed features a V-Tech hi-rebound EVA foundation paired with Duel-density impact relief pads and airflow perforation that will protect you feet from the biggest cliffs and boaters you find yourself on.
All this crazy tech talk packaged into one boot means at the end of the day you'll be enjoying a frosty beverage instead of crying yourself to sleep.
Vans Celtek Glove/Mitt ($50)
If you're looking for a glove that is truly Off The Wall, then the Vans x Celtek Mitt/Glove is the perfect fit. The team built both a glove and a mitt covered in the classic Vans checkerboard pattern with the Celtek character right on the back. It's super warm 20k Cel-Block insert will keep you going all day while the Microsuede palm with Go Getta Grip will make sure you stick every grab you can think of. The closure features a durable velcro strap (glove) or elastic pull (mitt) with the classic Vans OTW insignia on the inner cuff.
This collab is guaranteed to turn heads. Just don't keep them out of site or they will most likely get snagged by some kook. Both the glove and mitten come in a classic black as well.
Vans Celtek Chukka Low ($65)
If the Vans Chukka Low isn't a classic skate shoe already, it's definitely one in the making. So when Celtek teamed up to collaborate on a shoe with Vans, the Chukka Low was the perfect shoe.
When you give Celtek one of the best skate shoes in the industry it's bound to come back looking pimp. When you see these in person all you want to do is put them on to start strutting your stuff.
The classic Celtek green and orange are worked perfectly into the shoe. They didn't overdue it at all. The bright contrast-color stitching, trim and inside work perfectly with the dark black canvas and micro-suede upper. To top it off, they stuck the Celtek logo right on the back where the Vans logo is usually found. If you get your hands on a pair of these you won't be disappointed.
