Editor’s Notes: Vans takes two of its most popular silhouettes, the Era and Sk8-Hi, and gives them completely oversized features and layers, alongside Memphis-style colorways. More specifically, the sneakers feature platform bumpers, an exaggerated outsole and translucent foxing tape.
The white/checkerboard colorway of the Era sees an oversized checkerboard heel bumper beneath a translucent outsole with a stacked gum bumper at the toe. The second colorway uses dual-tone purple and black uppers with a pink and translucent sea green outsole that is accented with an oversized confetti bumper.
The teal Sk8-Hi is finished with translucent tape atop the platform sole, layered with traditional gum rubber and a confetti glitter toe bumper and pink heel.
Each model in the Stacked Collection is finished with Vans Wafflesaw, a modern version of the brand’s vulcanized outsole.
