Looks like Vans are going to find their way into the wardrobes of many modern gentlemen; the California Era Brogues feature the same qualities we have come to associate with iconic Vans styles, but with a sartorial twist. The brand has seemingly managed to achieve the impossible, combining elements of the timeless brogue shoe with sporty skate trainers.
Vans is well known for creating trainers for the skateboard market but designs such as these – and the the OTW Holiday Collection previewed last week – have proven that they are also capable of catering to a wider, more refined audience.
The California Era Brogues come in ‘Steel Grey & Black’ and ‘Blue Night & Friar Brown’ colourways, with both shoes featuring the signature rubber waffle sole that the brand is renowned for, brogue detailing and a two tone midsole. Constructed from a premium combination of leather and suede, they come complete with high quality waxed rolled laces.
These shoes will finish off any smart-casual ensemble with a subtle flair that will ensure you stand out effortlessly from the crowd. However, don’t let their refined appearance fool you – in true Vans style, these are built to last and can still be worn for those vigorous activities which pump up the adrenaline.
