While DEFCON origins remain classified, the projects stamped with their namesake speak volumes. Vans reunites with the stealth collective this spring to resurrect the Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro, engineered with three new Multicam patterns, Arid, Tropic, and Black, specifically designed to reduce the visual and near-Infrared signature of a person in three distinct environments.
As an ode to past projects, the Vans DEFCON Multicam capsule comes full circle, completing the footwear outfit with new apparel fabrics originally developed for the US Army and tactical law enforcement.
The DEFCON x Vans SK8-Hi Notchback is scheduled to release at select Vans Pro Skate retailers on May 24th, 2017. Along with the footwear, the two will also launch matching apparel on the same day. More images can be seen by scrolling below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
