Vans Skateboarding and Alltimers Throw Convention Out the Window with Latest Collaboration, Introducing the All-New Zahba
Vans Skateboarding is partnering up once again with Alltimers. Building on the fun-loving ethos the two brands share, the new collection marks the debut of Vans all-new, performance-driven silhouette, the Zahba.
The Vans Skateboarding x Alltimers Zahba collab is a fresh take on the classic court shoe. Alltimers created an easy-to-wear, all-white colorway that leaves their mark on the new silhouette with subtle debossed Alltimers martini logo on the heel and Vans debossed logo on the tongue. Finished with Vans Skateboarding x Alltimers co-branded laces in three colors, red, blue, or silver, the silhouette also features a molded hangtag and Bacchus imagery on the footbed that nod to a supporting apparel collection.
Built with fresh materials and new technology, including the new supercharged ImpactWaffle™ construction, the Zahba uplifts Vans VR3 designation, with regenerative, renewable, and/or recycled materials making up at least 30% of the shoe’s construction. Specifically, the Zahba’s VR3Cush™ dual-density midsole is made with 50% biobased EVA foam partially derived from plants. The outsole is made with a proprietary compound containing at least 55% responsibly sourced natural rubber obtained from sources that follow proven sustainable practices to reduce environmental impacts.
The Zahba’s ImpactWaffle™ outsole features SickStick™ rubber which provides the perfect amount of flexibility and board feel. The new outsole features a three-quarter cup with visible impact foam through the outsole plate and medial sidewall, while the upper is made of minimal panels and the one-piece vamp skaters know and love. The upper features a rubberized toecap for added durability and DURACAP™ stitch reinforcement to protect high-wear areas.
The Vans Skateboarding x Alltimers Zahba will be available on January 31, 2023, at select Vans Skate retailers and Vans.ca/Skateboarding.
