Lupe Fiasco x Vans OTW Stovepipe (2)

Lupe Fiasco and Vans OTW have just unveiled their latest creation, this new “Native Tongues” Stovepipe sneaker.  Inspired by the ‘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 retailers.
