Vans updates a classic white sneaker with the spirit of summer
There is no doubt that American skate shoe label Vans has enjoyed a fashion resurgence of late. No longer just shodding the feet of skaters (and fans of skate culture), any street style icon who favours gum soles over 4-inch stilettos have been lensed navigating the fashion circuit in their trusty kicks this past season or two. Like how we prefer our coffee, the fashion fiend will take their sneakers black — preferably in the Old Skool silhouette.
Casting the spotlight back on the classic white sneaker, Vans has collaborated with Malibu surf label Brothers Marshall to bring the spirit of sun, sand and surf to the Authentic and SF slip-on models. Contrasting a stark, chalk-white upper and matching laces are its vivid multi-coloured soles, an ode to the vibrant lifestyle of Los Angeles' coastal city.
Available at Vans stores in Singapore from 16 May 2017.
