After dropping their eco-fur-lined slip-on LX, Vans and BILLY’S have returned once again for a retro-inspired take on Vans’ classic silhouettes. This time around, the OG Era LX and OG SK8-Hi LX have been revamped, treated in darkly burnished “Andorra/Russet Brown” colorways.
First up is the OG ERA LX, covered in soft hairy suede fabrics with long bristles. From the padded upper collars to the front toe panels, contrasting white top-stitching is placed throughout the body, while a small “Vans” tab is placed around the side of the throat line. The top of the sneakers come with white eyelets, followed by round green and pink laces that cover the forefoot. As a finishing note, the shoes come with a black midsole that’s complemented by Vans’ iconic red heel stamp.
Like the previous model, the OG SK8-HI LX also comes with “Russet Brown” suede, except this time just along the eyelet panels, tongue, toe box, and backstay. From the collars to the lower body, the sidewalls see a rich burgundy-tinged canvas fabric that comes with green side stripes. Apart from white top-stitching and colorful laces, the sneaker is decorated with angular perforations that curve around the toe. All of these details sit atop a black midsole foundation, rounding up the darkened color scheme.
The Vans OG Era LX and OG SK8-Hi LX “Andorra/Russet Brown” will be exclusively available at billys-tokyo.net on December 7 for $120 and $130 USD, respectively.
