In this latest venture, Dime and Vans Skateboarding are reintroducing a beloved classic from the archives: the Rowley XLT. This release marks the newest addition to the the Vans "Reanimation Series," a project dedicated to bringing a variety of classic styles back to life.
This shoe was meticulously designed to include all of the technological features that defined the sneaker back in 2001. Remarkably, even the colors remain faithful, with the brand themselves specifically requesting a "pure reanimation" of the navy colorway. Nonetheless, this doesn't imply that the shoe remains entirely unchanged; with Vans technology as well as notable "Dime" branding hits on both the heel counter and tongue.
