The newest collaboration project between Vans and Defcon drops in the online shop on Saturday 5/27/17 at 00:01 am (just after midnight)
We received all 3 colorways along with the matching t-shirts. These are expected to sell out quickly, but any remaining pairs will be available at the Allston shop at 11am Saturday morning.

Local Boston customers use the coupon code “PICKUP” to cancel shipping charges and collect your order in store.

An added piece of advice is to set up an online account ahead of time for a quicker checkout.

Read below for more information about the project and for more photos:

While DEFCON origins remain classified, the projects stamped with their namesake speak volumes. Vans reunites with the stealth collective this spring to resurrect the Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro, engineered with three new Multicam® patterns, Arid™, Tropic™, and Black™, specifically designed to reduce the visual and near-Infrared signature of a person in three distinct environments. As an ode to past projects, the Vans DEFCON Multicam® capsule comes full circle, completing the footwear outfit with new apparel fabrics originally developed for the US Army and tactical law enforcement.
