Nothing spectacularly new here but we can always appreciate a lovely pair of Vans. This particular pair sees the Era 59 get a “Dark Shadow” makeover that involves a grey-ish blue upper presented in the always stunning pebble grained leather we have come to love from Vans. The maroon leather accent on the heel and boot style laces round these off nicely. If you’re in need of a fresh pair of Vans cop a pair now.
Two months ago, Vans California issued a Mid Skool duo united by their use of a pebbled leather on the uppers. The same material also works perfectly on lowtops, as evidenced by this new Vans California Era 59. Featuring a black color called ‘Shadow’, these Era 59s are made of a visibly soft leather and add golden brown accents and corded boot laces just like the Mid Skools. Check them out up close with several more angles after the jump, then find yours in stock at select Vans CA retailers like Politics.
The holidays mean winter is here and with it snow and other rough weather, which means you have to be ready to tackle the elements. Whether you’re outdoors or in, you’re going to need a solid covering of layers to battle the harsh conditions in winter appropriate fabrics no less. Materials like wool, suede, corduroy and fur are all built to withstand colder climates and luckily for us there isn’t a shortage of premium winter gear around. Thankfully keeping warm no longer means having to compromise sartorially, allowing you to be both stylish and ready for anything.
A true winter staple, Carhartt‘s Anchorage parka offers a clean classic design with multiple pockets and an all-important fur-trimmed hood to keep you extra cozy. For those who can’t shake their cap habit come winter, HUF‘s corduroy 5-panel will give you that extra bit of warmth while keeping with your steeze. To finish the look off, Vans has you covered with a premium version of the classic Era silhouette, outfitted in pig suede with a plush fleece lining. Your feet will thank you later.
Of course, there are plenty more pieces where these came from over here, and after you’ve checked out that collection, see the rest of our collections over here.

Taking the Vans Old Skool silhouette and extending it up a little bit is the Vans Mid Skool 77. The sneaker is seen here in a suede makeup that remains pretty muted thanks to the combination of the rather abstract sounding paloma and andorra colors. The “paloma” in particular is a bit of a confusing choice given that these aren’t exactly dove white, but perhaps there’s a reference or connection that we’re missing out on there. Stay with us until after the break to see the official images for this new release from Vans and then head over to the Vans webshop to pick up your pair today.
The Rapidweld technique from Vans is one that we’ve seen more often than not coming from their more modern leaning Vans LXVI category. Proving that they’re happy to extend the tech beyond those boundaries is the new “Rapidweld Pack” which concerns a couple of Vans Syndicate silhouettes. Outfitted with the treatment this time are the Vans Old Skool and the Vans Sk8-Hi, both of which maintain their OG shape if not their OG build. Get with us after the click to see each and keep in mind you can pick up the pair of them now from trusted skate retailer Premier.
Who said Vans’ retro models were the only ones that could benefit from prints and patterns? The forward-thinking Vans LXVI collection bucks that notion with this “Red Dawn Tie Dye” group. Granted the shoes are actually pretty restrained with their usage of patterns-as the titular them shoes up just on the laces and the insoles. Continue reading to get familiar with the Vans LXVI Iso ($70), the Vans LXVI Parameter ($95), and the Vans LXVI Locus ($80) that make up this group and watch for the sneakers in stores across the country and online at Vans now.
Under its LXVI performance imprint, Vans introduces the Red Dawn Tie Dye collection, a three-piece capsule of original LXVI styles that take the form of the Parameter, Locus and Iso. The Red Dawn theme, featuring a brightly colored tie-dye pattern inspired by the California sunrise, lights up the laces of the Parameter and Locus, and across the footbeds of all three styles. Otherwise, two of the silhouettes are dressed in a sleek black base, with tonal mesh uppers offering common material stories used in combination with waxy buck overlays on the Locus and pebbled leather overlays on the Parameter. Rounding out the trio is the Iso, featuring an ”air-mesh” black upper throughout and a matching black midsole. The kicks are available now at Vans LXVI retailers and online.
