Vans Reimagines the Platform with New Suede Outsole Pack

Vans Classic continues its efforts to evolve heritage models with design updates season-to-season. The latest is this new take on the Platform.

For its first drop of 2018, Vans releases the next iteration of the Authentic Platform 2.0 and the Classic Slip-On Platform.

For the drop, Vans designers reimagined the application of color and materials for the elevated sidewall. We see suede covering the Authentic Platform 2.0 and Classic Slip-On Platform across the upper and wrapping around the sidewalls of each shoe. This creates a unique take on monochromatic styling that combines texture and added height for a fashionable take on the classic style.

The Vans Classic Suede Outsole Pack drops in evening sand, ochre, asphalt, and blue flower colorways at retail locations and online this month.
