Avi Gold‘s Better™️ Gift Shop has brought its signature blue hue to Vault By VansStyle 36 and Half Cab. Offering up a crisp, elegant mixture of tones and thoughtful details, each style was made to be a Better™️ Gift Shop take on a timeless footwear style: blue suede shoes. “Blue suede shoes are a classic. Selfishly, we’ve always wanted our own version,” said Kevin Li, Better™️ Gift Shop co-founder and designer. “Vans gave us that opportunity.”

Both pairs boast full long hair suede uppers, and mix Better™️’s blue with a traditional marshmallow shade. The Style 36 uses blue in abundance on the quarter panels while looking to marshmallow on the toebox, eyestays, Jazz Stripe and heel, all of which boast blue contrast stitching. On the other end of the spectrum, the Half Cab supplies marshmallow quarters and toeboxes, blended with blue eyestays, mudguards and branded hits. Each boasts a special insole print and arrives with marshmallow and reflective lace options, all packaged in a custom box with an illustration of Better™️ Gift Shop’s Toronto flagship store.

The Better™️ Gift Shop x Vault by Vans Style 36 and Half Cab will release via the aforementioned flagship as well as the Better™️ webstore come November 28. The Style 36 arrives at $160 CAD (approximately $123 USD) while the Half Cab is priced at $180 CAD (approximately $138 USD).
