One feature of the silhouette that sticks out right away is the exposed foam that sits at the collar – hued in teal on both colorways. The side stripes are also done up in a foam material that passes through a branded tab. Checker patterns appear on the medial sides, while the laterals come in solid tones. Offsetting its rugged outlook, premium suede panels are added to the rear heel quarter and the front toe box, decorated with subtle perforations and white stitches. Other details like rubber foxing placed at the bottom of the midsole and the red heel logo placed upside down finish off the piece; adding a refreshing twist to Vans’ traditional design motifs.
