The Vans OTW Collection proudly presents Advocate Lupe Fiasco’s
colorway this holiday season
. Fiasco’s inspiration for this project references ‘90s hip-hop culture and fashion, an aesthetic he refers to as “Native Tongues”. The Grammy-award winning emcee integrates retro patterns and color schemes from the era into the design of the Stovepipe; the pattern utilized on the canvas tongue takes visual cues from native cultures and is a blend of African and Native American prints while the rest of the shoe is crafted in leather from ankle wrap to toe vamp in an all-black form that is contrasted by a bright hit of color at the outsole. The “Native Tongue” canvas is also used to construct a premium drawstring backpack that comes with each pair of the Stovepipe. Finished off with custom Lupe Fiasco branding and packaged with deluxe shoe box artwork, the Vans OTW x Lupe Fiasco Stovepipe is now available at select Vans OTW Collection retailers
