Hawaii’s In4mation is back again with the goods. This time around, it’s a full-blown collab with the Vans Half Cab. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the Half Cab is virtually over-collab’d at this point, but this one’s much more than a colorway. Denim and houndstooth have been interwoven to create a blue-collar aesthetic that’s still skateable. And when you wear down that denim, a hidden layer of hound reveals itself. It’s the shoe that keeps on giving!
The In4mation Half Cabs will be limited to 500 pairs worldwide and drop on December 12, so mark your iPhone now. Keep reading for the full press release…

Vans by In4mation Half Cab
Super, Uber Limited Edition!
August 19, 2008, Honolulu, HI – Hawaii's In4mation is at it again! In4mation, the undisputed king of collabs, have teamed up with skate footwear heavyweight Vans to unleash a new take on a classic with the Vans by In4mation denim/hounds tooth Half Cab!
The Vans Half Cab is a legend among skate shoes and was Steve Caballero's second signature shoe, originally released by Vans in 1991. Steve is a vertical skateboard pioneer, having invented many of the tricks that are standard today, including the Caballerial (fakie 360° ollie). The In4mation crew has been skating for decades, so it is with great respect that they merge the distinctive In4mation look with the Half Cab. With classic workman style updated for the sneakerhead, the Vans by In4mation Half Cab features a denim upper with hounds tooth accents as well as classic Vans touches like the original vulcanized waffle outsole. As the shoe is worn during skateboarding, the denim will breaks out to reveal more houndstooth beneath – a hidden layer of fabric – and the look of the shoe will change and evolve the more it is skated.
This In4mation x Vans offering will be released on December, 12th and will be limited to just 500 pairs worldwide, available exclusively through the In4mation website and storefront located at:
1050 Ala Moana Blvd. B1 Bay 5+6
Honolulu, HI 96814
