As part of the Vans ID pack, the low-top sneaker gets updated with luxe velvet uppers coming in two versatile colorways, including a scarlet red hue “Chili Pepper” and black. Both pairs are constructed with black sole units as well as color-matching lining.
What makes these footwear designs extra special, however, are the golden charms attached to the black cotton laces on the front. Drawing inspiration from nameplate necklaces, the gold charms feature a spelled-out Vans logo in a gothic typeface, with each of the letters placed right next to an eyelet on the sneaker.
Take a closer look at each colorway of the velvet Vans Era by browsing the gallery above. Priced at $70 USD, both styles can now be purchased online at vans.com, and in-store at select Vans locations and stockists.
