Vans and Dime Unveil New Three-piece Footwear Capsule Featuring the Iciest Kicks To Date
Montreal, Qc. (September 7, 2016) – To anniversary the 2015 release of the Vans | Dime Slip-On Pro, action sports enthusiasts Vans and Dime collaborate once again to bring forth a new three-piece capsule presenting two Old Skool Pro styles and an ice-cold Dream Blue Fairlane, available globally beginning on September 17th.
‘’We are overjoyed that the good folks at Vans let us bring back their timeless Fairlane silhouette for this project. Intense physical activity can really make your feet sweat and it’s important to stay cool. The objective here was to build the iciest kicks ever.’’
– Bryan, Warehouse Manager – Dime
‘’To build a shoe this icy was always an unattainable fantasy for Vans. Thanks to Dime’s financial contribution and the help from their research and development department, it’s now a reality.’’
– Trevor Hill, Director Global Footwear Merchandising – Vans
The Fairlane boasts a familiar sidewall and tread of the original early 90’s model. The modernized version has been gutted and rebuilt from the inside out to ensure a lasting performance level that meets today’s uncompromising action sports standards. The Fairlane features Vans’ Pro Lite cupsole construction and Vans’ Ultracush HD sockliner along with 90’s era materials such as visa terry linings, suede uppers with a puffy synthetic leather Sidestripe, and a custom molded “Dime” logo on the tongue.
The Fairlane is joined by two classic Old Skool Pros, available in Blue Nights/White and Marshmallow White/White.
The Vans | Dime capsule will be available on September 10 exclusively at the Vans | Dime Pop-up in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood. The pop-up shop opens from the 10th to the 17th of September.

“In the opinion of our award-winning international low impact skateboard media institution, Dime is the finest skateboard think tank in operation today. There are a few great companies and crews out right now, but there is no other crew that incites envious feelings of “Damn, why didn’t I think of that?” to the extent that Dime does with their consistently brilliant output. They make you laugh, say “holy shit,” and hyped to go skate all at the same time.’’ – QUARTERSNACKS.COM
