UK sneaker store Offspring have teamed up with Vans to create this double offering of the popular silhouette, the California Era 59.
This one is a seriously smooth and understated affair, with a balance of simple aesthetics and premium materials used which come in two toned down colour-ways. The dark navy version utilises premium leather on the upper, with brown accents on the outsole trim and also on the contrasting panel running along the back of the shoe. The Brown leather laces are a nice finishing touch, providing something a little different from the norm. The sage make-up makes good use of suede on the upper, with the same contrasting brown leather panel on the heel area providing an excellent finish and combination with the sage upper.
This is a superb collaboration, which should go down well with Vans footwear enthusiasts and casual consumers too.
