Talk about opposite extremes! The crew over at Japanese retailer BEAMS have followed up their eye-bleedlingly colourful Diadora with a Vans Era so visually simple that you'll be questioning whether it's even a colab at all. With 2016 marking both the 50th anniversary of Vans and 40th anniversary of BEAMS, the two have taken it back to basics with an ultra clean Era in rich navy canvas and pure white to accent, including leather heel tabs. The devil is in the details as they say and, as such, BEAMS have added their unmistakeable orange colouring to the rear 'Off the Wall' plate tabs and to the 'Vans' side tab on the right shoe. The sweetest part of this colab however, is not on the shoes at all – it's the rad figure of Steve Van Doren (aka Mr Vans) that comes packaged with every pair!
