Sneakers are cool, but beaters, those battered and tattered trainers exist in a whole different realm. The way the leather is scratched or the suede is torn expresses tales of memorable war stories and enjoyment. Injecting a snippet of this essence into a staple silhouette, Vans presents its new 'CA Overwashed Collection'. Arriving in three basic schemes of red, blue and black, each pair receives some heavy cosmetic hammering, offering a sense of shabby chic. Although they already seem worn-out, you can obtain and wear-in any or all three colours now via stockists including Feature Sneaker Boutique.
