Editor’s Notes: As part of its Fall 2018 collection, Vans continues to update its Classics silhouettes with the introduction of this “Vintage Military” pack.
In the ’70s, Vans’ interest in the California skate scene brought about its heel tab skate logo which was first implemented onto low-top shoes such as the Authentic 138.
For its throwback-pack, the designs are defined by a textured suede makeup and a vintage-inspired foxing first seen on Vans styles from the late ‘70s, the Sk8-Hi are rendered in two colorways that draw influence from traditional workwear suiting, consisting of blue and dusty olive, while the Authentic 138 boasts tonal finishes in chambray blue and grey.
This entire “Vintage Military” pack will be available at Vans retailers and online starting next month. Will you be a copping a pair? Let us know in the comments below.
