After making waves with a collaborative capsule with artist Taka Hayashi this past holiday season, Vans’s contemporary offshoot is now ushering a sleek new iteration of its Authentic model. The low-top sneaker is predominantly adorned with premium stingray leather and comes in two distinct colorways: burgundy and black. Both pairs are offered with complementing laces and feature a white “eye” graphic slapped in the middle of the toe cap—the eye is usually seen across a slew of stingray leather products and are more or less placed on the highest panel that is prone to erode as the item ages over time.
It’s also important to note that the stingray skin on the Authentics were certifiably gleaned from a food manufacturer in Thailand. Take a look at the latest Vault by Vans pack above and purchase it now at select stockiest such as colette.
