So-Cal’s favourite skate brand has sprouted a set of classic silhouettes with an understated botanical influence. The ‘Faded Rose’ pack from Vans uses dusty pink canvas and suede to create a visual conundrum – although the colours might seem soft, these shoes are built tough.
From the Slip-On to the Sk8-Hi, the Authentic to the Old Skool, the collection offers something to suit any sartorial scenario. Each model has been wrapped up with a crisp white strip of foxing tape, which houses the brand’s classic waffle sole. It takes a confident bloke to rock a rosy pink sneaker, perhaps it’s time to man up with your Vans up.
