The collection includes 4 styles available for men and women will retail at RM799 (Classic Slip On in Black) and RM549 (Era in Washed Navy, Washed Red & Washed Black). 

CLOT’s co-founder, Edison Chen said about the partnership, “We’ve always had a few pairs of Vans we enjoyed like the Wtaps one and the more limited edition shoes.  We’ve collaborated with a lot of footwear companies and it’s interesting to work on a Classic Vans silhouette not only for skating but for everyday lifestyle.  They’re very comfortable to wear.  Working with Vans was super easy and super cool and I would love to work with them again really soon.” “Vans is definitely one of those brands that I love and respect a whole lot. Working with them on this collaboration has been a joy. It just made sense for CLOT and VANS to get together to create something that had elements of both brands. Together, we’ve really stepped it in terms of detailing and quality in order to deliver a fresh product to our fans. That’s really what it’s all about” CLOT’s co-founder, Kevin Poon said.

Jenn Kong, Vans APAC Marketing Director said, “We're honored to work with CLOT on our first collaboration together. CLOT has been one of the brands leading the charge for creative self expression in youth and street culture in Asia for years which matches perfectly to what Vans stands for.”
