Inducted for his third collaboration with Vans, Rhuigi Villaseñor of L.A-based fashion imprint - R H U D E joins Vans once more for a new set of sneakers with a familiar theme. Adopting a custom 'Bandana' print, one of Rhuigi's favourites, Vans and RHUDE unveil new iterations of 2 rare silhouettes, the Acer Ni and Diamo Ni.
The Acer Ni, as vibrant as many of RHUDES designs, features a multi-colored patchwork-like suede panelling, composed of pink, green, orange, and purple. The eye-catching Acer Ni, also sees an all-over paisley print embroidered into the suede upper.
The wearable and monochrome Diamo Ni contrasts the ultra-bright Acer model with an upper constructed of a complete off-white canvas. The Diamo, which features color in the form of hits of yellow only on the heel-tab and midsole stamp, was created for customization. Rhuigi intends for the the blank canvas of the Diamo Ni to be dyed by its wearer, creating a personalized piece of art, which will be highlighted by the white paisley embroidery, which will not adopt any color from dye. Finally, both sneakers are finished off with an included set of yellow and 'RHUDE' monogrammed white laces.
