Malabar

The Malabar Boot is a 1 week personal project from my co-op at Vans. Malabar is an all-weather boot built for the extremes of urban life. An unstructured military inspired silhouette with signature Vans detailing.

Consumer

Has a simple, relaxed, but sincerely considered style - looking to deviate from core Vans offerings with a pared back, military influenced boot for inclement weather and other sub-par conditions in an urban environment.

Market

Vans has the opportunity to take a part of the market that is already familiar with the brand, but is missing this common streetwear staple offered by competitors like Nike, Converse, and Palladium.
