Which one you would choose between nike and vans? If you’re into with military and outdoor gear, don’t say that you’re a military fans if you don’t have this shoes. This is Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro “S” Collaborated with DEFCON. The shoes itself represent the person who worn them as a military enthusiasm. They came in MAS GREY color which is the color that is used by London Bridge Trading for their 6094UW plate carrier. The question that come cross to my mind about this shoes, what’s good about it? Then I decided myself to get this shoes, and I would like to share my opinion with you.
First of all I’m not a big fan with VANS sneakers. And Over decades I’m always wear Nike SB. But since I followed DEFCON Group, and not too long ago I saw they released a preview of their new collaborated sneakers with VANS. And that is a VANS Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro “S” in Mas Grey color. When I heard Mas Grey, I know this group is different with other tactical groups that I’ve known. The Mas Grey color itself is the color that is been using by LBT for their Plate carrier, the 6094UW. Basically, this color is not the same with a ranger green color, cause I’ve tried to worn them with my Crye G3 pants, and it showed a small differential color between the Mas Grey shoes with Crye Pants G3 Ranger Green; however, it is still a great combination whenever you have a plain green army pants, and you combine it with this sneakers.
From the price itself, it’s not bad at all with $120 you can get this shoes. But the hardest part is to find out which store that carry VANS collaborated shoes,and especially this one. Because not all VANS store that are carrying VANS X Defcon in Mas Grey since they’re special edition and if you have a big foot like me, 10.5US you might wanna get this sneakers as soon as possible before they run out their 10.5US.
This shoes is awesome and I give two thumbs up to Defcon Group for they’re creation. And if you like military or outdoor gear but you don’t want to be exposed in front of anybody as a military person, then my suggestion is it won’t be wrong to go with this shoes. It has dark green color, not to eye catchy, and there’s a velcro on the shoes which it will allow you to attach some patches that you want to put on it. It’s a great shoes and you can’t go wrong with it. Bottom Line you’re good to go, and rock on.
