The Era Origami
Rooted in a DIY culture that continues to push outside the traditional footwear framework, Vans introduces the Era and Classic Slip-On Origami. Drawing inspiration from sculptural artworks, the updated Classic silhouettes offer an abstract look by adding overlays and using unexpected materials.
Vans’ original skate shoe, the Era, has been remastered in two colorways. The first combines the iconic Checkerboard print with textured black overlays.
A second iteration of the Era juxtaposes color, material and texture. White suede uppers compliment oversized suede at the toe and heel. Atop the upper is an architectural purple suede applique in an embossed crocodile pattern, and the abstract shoe is complete with a pink materialization on the heel.
Rounding out the Origami Pack is Vans Classic Slip-On which masterfully combines two most-loved colorways, black suede and Checkerboard, into a single design execution.
