Vans introduces a six-piece capsule for Holiday 2017 that reimagines the classic Authentic and Old Skool models.

This capsule focuses on the sidewall for its design, adding embossed ridges and studs to the vulcanized midsole.

Vans first shoe, the Authentic, is updated and dubbed the Authentic Platform 2.0. It features a raised sidewall in tonal black, with ridging details reminscent of a traditional creeper silhouette and is finished with d-ring lacing. It is also available in two all-over suede executions, including a black to the floor and red/black colorway. The final colorway features a blend of black suede and leopard printed canvas.

Accompanying the Authentic is the Old Skool, which boasts punk styling with tonal embossed studs on the sidewall. The Old Skool is available in blanc de blanc, chili pepper and all black, each made in patent leather and paired with a tonal matte leather Sidestripe.

The Vans Embossed Sidewall Pack is available now at Vans stores and online, ranging from $65 to $75 USD.
