Model: Authentic and Era
Key Features: Noah's Vans Authentic uses one piece of suede for the entire exterior of the shoe, as the seams from the front toe cap have been removed. To contrast, the Era features suede, canvas, and corduroy panels, with patterns and colors that reference mid-1980s surf and skate cultures.
Release Date: October 22
Buy: noahny.com and at Noah NY, Noah Clubhouse Tokyo, and Noah Noodle Shop Osaka
Editor’s Notes: Noah is following its recent Barbour collaboration with a new joint effort alongside Vans. For the upcoming release, the New York-based brand has reimagined two classic Vans silhouettes in the Authentic Era.
By removing the seams from the front toe cap and applying a single piece of suede, Noah presents an undeniably clean take on the Authentic. The Era, on the other hand, is decked out with various patterns and colors, drawing inspiration from surf and skate cultures of the mid-1980s.
