Deep in description and decoding, the Lupe Fiasco x Vans OTW Stovepipe “Native Tongues” references the afro-centric, cultural and conscious hip-hop movement of the 90s while tying in Native/Central American inspiration. Pattern print tags the tongue and the sole, making a statement about communication as well as ancestry. The rest of the shoe remains black, providing a dual statement on genetics and culture. Look for these to release soon at select Vans OTW accounts, including Nice Kicks.
