Vans and Italian label Diemme continue their relationship with a premium take on another classic Vans silhouette in the Montebelluna Era LX.
Two new colourways are released under the Vans Vault tab in contrasting hues of yellow suede and Bordeaux leather. The Eras have been hand-made in Diemme’s own factory in Montebelluna, Italy, and therefore present something quite different from the rest of the Vans line. Their Italian origins are marked with a small flag label stitched behind the heel as well as ‘Made In Italy’ text on the white leather footbed. Those with a keen eye will spot the biggest difference in the sole, with the classic Vans vulcanised waffle sole swapped for a hand-stitched Diemme cupsole, complete with Vault heeltab and Diemme branding underneath.
Diemme are known for their superior craftsmanship and use of the highest quality materials, something that is reflected in the £265 price tag that comes attached to this release. The Vans Vault x Diemme Montebelluna Era LX is available now in sizes UK 7-11 at Footpatrol.
