Model: Era and Slip-On

Key Features: Both models feature a premium suede leather upper with embossed midsoles. The Era’s midsole is rendered in high gloss and reads “EVERY GENERATION NEEDS A NEW REVOLUTION,” while the Slip-On comes with the message “PEOPLE EVERYWHERE ARE CREATED EQUAL.” Both styles also feature a mini checkerboard foxing stripe with discreet Commonwealth branding on the backside of the Vans woven label.

Release Date: May 18

Price: $120


Editor’s Notes: Commonwealth and Vans have teamed up for the first time, reworking two classic models: the Era and Slip-On. Both kicks have a slight military-style look, with the Era dressed in “Desert Sage” and the Slip-On in “Lark Tan” colorways. But the major takeaway here is Commonwealth’s addition of socially conscious messaging, with embossed midsoles that take a stand for political change and human equality.

Check out both models in detail above and look for the collection to drop exclusively at Commonwealth flagships and online on May 18.
