First presented to you by us a couple of weeks ago, we came across some better images of the upcoming Stussy x Hectic New Balance CM670 “Chestnut” pack. Perfect for the fall season they propose two sneakers in the pack – a chestnut/green and a chestnut/orange colorway. A nice mix of classic looks and a strong and popping color.
The Stussy x Hectic New Balance CM670 pack will be released on 2nd of August.

One of our favorite packs out of the Vans Vault Fall 2008 collection has been released today – the Lead Plaid Pack. The pack consists of the Zappato Del Barco, Authentic, Slip-On and Sk8 Hi, all featuring a plaid pattern all over the upper, hits of beige suede and a nice finish on the lining. Further accents on laces and logos come in red.
There is simply nothing to complain about the pack – it’s perfect for the late summer days.
The Van Lead Plaid Pack is now available at Proper.

Not exactly a stash pocket per-say, Vans has dropped a new SK8-HI LX featuring the use of square-sized pocket on the sides. In what we estimate is a largely trival function, the pocket fastened by a button features two styles available in khaki and camo. With a suggested retail price of $80 USD, check your local Vans dealer as well as Standard.
Just a few days ago we gave you a look at the Nike SB Eugene Backpack that comes in the “Buzz Lightyear” (Toy Story) inspired colorway and the more subtle Black colorway and now it looks like the Nike SB team has just released their classic Skate Back Pack in similar colorways.
