The Vans Era has served as a literal and figurative canvas for a vast expanse of patterns and prints over its decades on the market, and now Vans’ latest effort sees it dressed in a distinct floral pattern. With black stems and leaves surrounding vibrant purple, pink and red flowers, these Eras are equal parts striking and sublime.
Presenting an interesting alternate take on a recognizable motif, the crisp white upper is covered from heel to toe with flowers and accented down below by a black rubber midsole. This combination of bold detailing and stark contrasts calls to mind thoughts of Supreme and Jean Paul Gaultier‘s Eras and Chukkas that released this past spring, but thanks to the alternate colors and differences in print, it’s still its own unique style. A red rubber badge is present on the heel, and the look is completed by Vans’ signature gum waffle outsole.
It may be the dead of winter, but this summer-ready, flower-printed Vans Era is available now at the Vans webstore for $60 USD.
