Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Available May 27 at Select Retailers Globally

Cypress, CALIF. (May 23, 2017) – 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.

Available at select Vans Pro Skate retailers worldwide on May 27, the Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro by DEFCON features:

• Premium Waterproof and Flame Retardant Wolverine Pig Suede®
• Water-Resistant treatment on uppers
• Multicam® Nylon textiles
• Dri-Lex™ moisture management linings throughout
• Gusseted tongue
• Military detailing from DEFCON identity to BDU specs
• Vans Ultracush HD footbeds w/ custom artwork
• Hesh Goat embossed heel stamp
• Durable reverse lug outsole and knurled texture foxing tape

DEFCON has evolved into a multifaceted study group responsible for the marketing and development of some of the leading brands in the tactical and streetwear worlds. Through both natural curiosity and fascination turned obsession, DEFCON has perfected their craft in media modifications, establishing their repute as a standalone brand.

The Vans by DEFCON limited-edition footwear and apparel capsule is available worldwide on May 27 at select Vans Pro Skate dealers. Visit to find authorized dealers near you.

A New, Unseen MultiCam Variant

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013


Reader Wilson S sent us this photo of a Vans LX shoe in the rare new “Aloha” variant of MultiCam. According to Crye, these are legit and were released late summer by Vans. The fabric was purchased from Duro and over printed to get the desired effect. It’s purely an item produced by Vans and I doubt we’ll ever see this again unless someone gens up a run of 500D and does a run of day packs and chest rigs. But, it does to to show how ubiquitous MultiCam has become.
