Vans OTW Prelow
Were the holiday 2012 releases the final Pritchards from Vans OTW? We haven’t seen any since their October issue, and with a new derby-style lowtop on tap from Vans’ skate-inspired lifestyle division around the turn of the year, it’s logical to conclude we’re witnessing a product cycle transition. The Vans OTW Prelow is a worthy successor, and we can’t help but notice some similarities between its design and the immensely popular Nike Roshe Run, particularly when it comes to the woven quarter and grooved outsole. An apparent case of classic skate minimalism influencing itself by proxy, you can see four new pairs for the first quarter after the jump.
