If there is one thing that you cannot knock Vans for, it is the brand’s ability to consistently churn out product throughout every season effectively maintaining a steady stream of releases all year. The latest iteration within the storied Authentic lineage arrives as a Decon built California Collection release for Summer 2012. The pair is mocked up in a supple black leather and set atop a classic white waffle outsole. A fitting seasonal and cleaned up aesthetic, the premium leather vibe is further augmented by a subtle brown Vans embroidery tag and complementary brown tube laces. In some ways, this release gives nod to the same maturity and refined style first appropriated within the A.P.C. x Vans Vault LX collection last year. In total, three colorways will be released for the 2012 summer Authentic Decon CA Pack that will begin hitting select Vans stockists beginning July 1.
