Vans goes ‘Deep Green’ in a not-so-mean velveteen take on the Authentic. Worlds away from classic canvas, the entire upper of these is constructed from velvet – lending a luxurious vibe to the typically casual shoe. Looking like the canopy of an enchanted wood, the almost iridescent green is paired with black laces and stitching across the panels. A blacked-out vulcanised sole unit keeps everything somewhat grounded. With the reworking of a classic style in a vintage textile, the Authentic has never looked so mysterious.
If you’re enchanted by these dreamy greens then you’d better hop to it– they’re exclusive to BILLY’S TOKYO available from January 13th.
