The Vans Era was first released in 1975, and has since become a classic silhouette for bikers, skaters, and surfers alike. Keeping the silhouette fresh has been quite a task for Vans, however, with the explosion of the hipster movement, the shoe has been creeping back into the spotlight. The latest from the Vans camp is this nice mix of canvas and suede that adopts a simple grid design on the quarter panel that extends around the heel. The top cap is left a solid color, black or grey, that matches the standard stripe around the heel. This pair is available exclusively over at Oshman’s in Japan.
