being vegan and growing up as a skateboard kid in the 80's/90's i've been wearing vans shoes for over 20 years now. and it's quite certain that the classic and timeless silhouette of the era/authentic will outlive every ridiculous hypeshit. these are my recent top 5: era black. era black/pink (inca). authentic black/marshmallow (waxed canvas). era maroon/hawaiian (van doren). authentic dark denim (gumsole).
