Modern Vice x Oak Exclusive Collaboration
For Fall 2012, Modern Vice announces its partnership with progressive New York-based retailer, Oak. Modern Vice x Oak consists of four exclusive, limited-edition boots and wedge sneakers- two men’s and two women’s- handcrafted and manufactured in New York City. The boots are designed around classic styles with solid construction, but transformed into the minimalist, modern and edgy aesthetic that Oak emulates.
Brothers Jensen and Jordan Adoni launched Modern Vice this season with a collection of luxurious, premium quality shoes and sneakers targeted to men’s and women’s footwear and fashion enthusiasts. Using only the finest Italian leathers, Modern Vice x Oak boots are carefully handcrafted at the Adoni factory in the heart of New York’s Garment District. It is the only full production footwear facility in Manhattan that produces up to hundreds of pairs of shoes each day, entirely on US soil.
All of the shoes feature a Modern Vice x Oak silver medallion, and are engraved by hand and numbered/dated by batch and style. In addition, each shoe box varies as they are individually handcrafted and hand dyed with paper created in the mountains of Nepal and sprayed with a blend of amber, saffron, raspberry, thyme and jasmine-infused cologne. Other specialty features include hand sewn dust bags with raw hide drawstrings that convert into backpacks and personal notes from the Adoni brothers stamped with a custom Modern Vice branded logo. Modern Vice x Oak boots are currently available at both Oak locations at 28 Bond St. in New York City and 55 Nassau Ave. in Brooklyn, as well as on oaknyc.com and modernvice.com for $400 – $500. The ongoing partnership between the two local brands will continue as more styles are being created for spring.
