A trend started by Japanese shoemaker Hender Scheme, we are still seeing a lot of sneaker brands jump on the vegetable-tanned leather trend. In the meantime we have seen some of the most iconic sneakers wrapped in the special leather treatment, including in-line Air Force 1s, fashionable sneakers by Margiela, custom YEEZY Boost 750 and many more.

For Fall 2016 Vans has decided to give its most iconic sneaker silhouettes the veggie leather treatment. The pack includes the Vans Era, the Vans Old Skool, the Vans Slip-On, and the Vans Sk8-Hi Zip. All four sneakers are entirely wrapped in vegetable-tanned leather on the upper and featuring matching stitching, lining and laces, sitting on a contrasting crisp white outer sole. Get these now all from the Vans online store.
