We recently released a small collection to coincide with the release of our Vans x Publish Brand Breton Boot, called “Lost Control.” Inspired by the post-punk movement of the ’80s, the selection highlights monochromatic color themes throughout the offerings. We had the pleasure of working with photographer Zhi Wei in shooting some amazing photos for this collection. Zhi is a fashion photographer based in Singapore and NYC. See more of Zhi’s work here.
Introducing our first footwear collaboration with none other than Southern California’s iconic Vans.
Pulling inspiration from sportswear and high end menswear alike, it is a premium amalgamation of the two concepts expressed in a classic Vans silhouette. Made from water resistantt ballistic nylon, it sits atop a Vibram® Cristy outsole and is hued in black from top to bottom with a minimalist color blocking set at the embossed leather heel paneling and midsole clip to form a sharp contrast. The boot is finished with a neoprene collar to provide ultimate comfort and all day wearability.
We had the pleasure of bringing our release party with Vans out to Hawaii in late October. Being two California brands, we could have easily thrown a party out here in Los Angeles but why not try something new? We decided to bring it to big island of Oahu and we brought some friends with us to throw the party down! Check out some photos below from the event night. Thank you to everyone that came and supported us! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Finally all the buzz and excitement manifested into reality last weekend when the Publish Brand crew took flight to visit our account Kicks Hawaii for the official in-store release of the Publish x Vans OTW Breton Boot. The event kicked off at 1pm on the 26th of October in Honolulu with talented DJ Delve and Dam-Funk on the turn tables. With the entire store grooving to funky jams, the event ended on a great note with our team, the Vans team, Kicks HI, friends, family, Publishers and shoe lovers connecting about the highly anticipated release of this premium boot.
The intricate details of this Breton definitely need a second look. Don’t be fooled by the boot’s simple colorway. The excellent quality and execution of this boot is the reason why Kicks On Fire named the Publish x Vans collaboration “Boot of the Year.” The clean colors selected for the design compliments any outfit, making it a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. The black nylon upper is water-resistant for every day wear, while the white leather mid-sole contrasts the rest of the boot for aesthetic style. The back panel is reflective constructed of 3M materials to make you pop, when necessary. The perforated neoprene tongue and collar paired with an UltraCrush HD and Vibram sole adds great comfort to this exclusive fall boot.
