The highlight, though, is undoubtedly the Slam Jam logotypes along the white rubber midsole, designed by Fergus “Fergadelic” Purcell. The phrase “Stamp Out Mediocrity” is also printed on the outsole.

Editor’s Notes: Italian retailer Slam Jam has unveiled its latest collaboration with Vans, this time taking on the Era. The silhouette features Vans’ famous checkerboard pattern, which has been done up in Slam Jam-themed colors.
Complementing the loud upper, and by far the project’s highlight, are the various Slam Jam logotypes designed by Fergus Purcell along the midsole. Fergadelic, as he’s otherwise known, famously created Palace Skateboards’ Tri-Ferg logo and has designed for the likes of Marc Jacobs.
If you’re looking for a classic silhouette with that little bit of an X-factor, you can’t go wrong with this.
