Julien Stranger, legendary skater and founder of Bay Area brand Anti-Hero, has collaborated with Vans on their latest Syndicate release. Stranger’s Pro S editions of the Era and Old Skool silhouettes are specifically designed to be worn without socks and come with perforated pigskin suede quarter panels for breathability, as well as two interchangeable footbed options – Vans’ UltraCush Lite CMEVA and a Dri-Lex insole that is both reversible and washable.

Vans Vault is known for its super clean products, often simple designs executed perfectly. This season is no exception; following on from the OG slip-on pack they now present this slick Palm Leaf pack featuring the in trend plantlife-esque leaf print.
The pack includes the Sk8-Hi LX and Era LX each decked out in two colourways of the same all over print. This collection supports the old phrase 'simple is best'.
The upper of the sneakers comes dressed in black suede for the toe and heel sections, the mid section is comprised of Silas camo print canvas standing out against the black.
Worldwide fashion and beauty brand, Kenzo have teamed up with Vans creating a limited line of the popular Era model.
Split into two packs, there is a choice of a solid colour or the classic two-tone Era, all of which are covered in the custom fence design sitting on a white sole.
The entire collection works very well, making for a perfect summer release. Catch all of the colorways from both collections after the jump.
With the opening of their Dover Street Market store in Ginza, Japan only a few days away, COMME des GARCONS have revealed a tie-in collaboration with SUPREME. The collaboration consists of two main style of products both taking classic CDG shirt designs; a collection featuring the CDG striped fabric and a small polka dot capsule.
The result is amazing.
For Spring 2012 Vans are releasing this tidy pack featuring six new make ups of two of their seminal lines.
The Canvas & Leather Pack is comprised of three make ups of their classic deck shoes, the Zapato del Barco, and three complimentary builds of their other classic the Era.
First conceived as Vans #95 in 1975, what we now know as the Era is arguably Vans' most iconic silhouette, which has seen every colourway under the sun in the past 36 years.
I was saying quite recently that I only really have time for Cali Vans nowadays, as they continue to create dope products with ease, whereas the standard Vans stock is somewhat less inspiring.
With the endless options available from Vans in the Era silhouette, we all know that it's a pretty diverse sneaker. These two builds for Fall '11 sit highly in the ranks.
