Inspired by the early years of California’s skate and surf scene, Vans Classics presents the next installment of the “Golden Coast” collection featuring the Authentic, Classic Slip-On, Era, Sk8-Hi Reissue and Style 36. The collection reminisces over the time period with a special series of checkerboard and two-toned color-ups in vintage tones. The checkered selection showcases the Authentic and Classic Slip-On in five allover prints. The original form of the Old Skool, the Style 36, is also highlighted with checkerboard paneling and suede overlays. The two-toned offerings, the Era and Sk8-Hi Reissue, conclude the assortment with a throwback color palette of deep water, red, dress blues and spectra yellow. The “Golden Coast” editions of the Authentic and Classic Slip-On are available now at select Vans retailers while the Era, Sk8-Hi Reissue and Style 36 will be available beginning in July.
