Vans Alomar OTW (Deep Blue)

Some Vans OTW goodness here, the ‘Alomar’ is a high top new model for Vans which debuted last year in the summer. This new make-up utilises a smooth deep blue colour which sits on an off-white outsole.

As always with the OTW collection, the materials are of high quality and on this release the upper has a combination of premium suede and leather that works. Suede dominates most of the shoe with leather added to make the toebox and also adding finishing touches on the tongue and panel edges. There’s minimal branding too, which adds more subtleness to this sublime make-up, with an engraved ‘OTW’ logo sitting on a suede tab on the tongue. Other details include the gold eyelets and wax laces, which finish up this shoe nicely.

Available from SoleHeaven for £64 now.

    I got these back in the summer from Vans on Carnaby Street. At first I only bought them because they were OTW’s and they ended up in my cupboard for a long time. However, one day I decided to bust them out and I didn’t stop wearing them for a month. Definitely worth the higher price tag for Vans.
