BILLY’s Tokyo is known for frequently offering exclusive Vans capsules, and for its latest effort, the retailer has added vivid leopard stylings to three classic silhouettes: Bess Ni, Bold Ni and Era.

Most pieces of footwear that present leopard graphics do so with a flat print, but BILLY’s and Vans have opted to add bold texture to theirs, making for a trifecta of designs that are as wild in feel as they are in look. The fierce fabric is applied differently on each silhouette as well, offering a unique juxtaposition with each shoe’s natural white canvas accents and special hits.

The Bess Ni keeps its print to the lateral side and opts for a mostly unadorned medial half, save for the semi-circular patch on the midfoot. Further layering is presented by the asymmetrical toebox. The Bold Ni uses the most material of the bunch, embellishing every inch of the upper except for the thick Jazz Stripes on each side, while also adding a classic Vans logo to the tongue. Last but not least, the Era offers a middle ground between its compatriots, wrapping everything but the lateral quarter with faux fur.

All three pairs will be made available for pre-order at BILLY’s on October 12. The Bess Ni is priced at ¥14,300 JPY (approximately $133 USD), the Bold Ni at ¥16,500 JPY (approx. $153 USD), and the Era at ¥15,400 JPY (approx. $143 USD). Tax is included in each shoe’s price.

In recent Vans news, the Anaheim-based brand just revealed three new “Fuck Off” SK-8 His in collaboration with Supreme.
