The Old Skool Shoes boast a clean design with a canvas and suede upper that’s stayed true to it’s origins. The shoes debuted back in 1977 as the so called "Style 36" and were the first to bare the iconic side stripe. The Vans Old Skool are more durable with re-enforced suede toe caps and heel panel to withstand repeated wear and padded collars for support and flexibility.
Iconic pattern maker Realtree has stood the test of time, becoming synonymous with camouflage worldwide. What began as terrain specific clothing options for hunters, has grown into a multi faceted, cross industry pattern and household name. Today streetwear leaders and fashion houses employ use of these patterns in their seasonal lines.
The Vans ‘Off The Wall’ rubber logo on the heel adds that authentic touch and to finish the Old Skool pair Vans have added their famous signature rubber waffle outsole while sitting atop a gum midsole.
