NOAH x Vans Reunite to Reimagine the Authentic and OG Era LX Silhouettes
Featuring bold patterning and fall-ready textures.
Following their partnership last year, Vans and NOAH have joined forces once again for fall-ready footwear. Arriving in two iterations, the sneaker lineup celebrates the silhouettes’ roots that date back to the ’70s.
Vans’ Authentic kicks, also known as Style 44, are reimagined with minimal details throughout. The skateboard shoes arrive in brown, pastel pink and deep indigo shades, with a simple upper that is updated with the original seams removed from the toe cap. One panel of suede makes up the entire exterior, leaving a clean look with barely any stitching.
On the other hand, the OG Era LX takes a completely different approach with bold patterning and patchwork celebrating Vans’ 1976 shoe. A selection of suede, canvas and corduroy pieces is combined on the upper, boasting prints like camo, checkerboard and paisley that take inspiration from the mid-’80s.
