Living in the Vans Era
Originally known as the #95, the Vans Era was created by skateboarding legends Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta way back in the mid-seventies. Remarkably, it still looks as fresh and effortless as it did when it first hit the sun-baked concrete of Southern California over 40 years ago. The current lineup features dozens of throwbacks that are sure to be a big hit with lovers of retro, as well as fresh new takes on the cusp of fashion.
Made for Boards, But Not Boring
The Vans Era was and still is a purpose-built skateboarding shoe. Almost as soon as they were released, no self-respecting skateboarder could afford to be without a pair, and the situation hasn't changed since. Equally, the effortless ease of the design gave the Era massive crossover appeal, so that it has become a favourite for everyday casual-wear too.
Anatomy of an American Classic
Made from double-stitched canvas, the original Vans Era design is rugged yet laid-back. It has a thick padded collar to protect the ankle. Meanwhile, the one-piece outsole, made from Van's famously “sticky” rubber and finished off with a waffle tread, is a consummate blend of responsiveness and grip. Popping colour combos, a discreetly placed label beneath the lace stays and the “off the wall” logo to the insole add the finishing touches to this enduring slice of Americana.
Seriously, What Can't You Wear with Vans Era Shoes?
The joy of the Vans Era is its versatility. Guys can pair it with blue jeans, slim fit chinos, or dark trousers and a favourite top. Girls can do the same or opt for a denim shirt or cut-offs. Its a shoe you can wear to the skate park, or you can lace them up and go wherever you want to go. And to make it even easier, the Vans Era now comes in a whole host of different versions, from all over prints, checkerboard patterns and stacked heels for women; the Vans Era just keeps rolling on.
