Back in 2002, when Rian Pozzebon, who was then a relative unknown in the sneaker community, got the offer to join vans sale berlin and help rebuild the brand’s ailing skate shoe program with his longtime friend and colleague Jon Warren, he had one big question: “Will they let us mess with the classics?”
At the time, vans sale outlet wasn’t particularly interested in core models like the Slip-On, Old Skool, and Authentic. “The classics just kind of existed,” says Pozzebon. “But they weren’t pushed.” Instead, they languished—in just a few basic colors—in Vans stores.
The company's focus was directed elsewhere, on newer styles. After riding the wave of the ‘90s skateboarding boom, vans black friday sale 2017 faced new competition from younger skate shoe brands like DC and Osiris. These companies—born only a few years earlier—favored a chunkier, more tech-forward silhouette (a word the fashion community uses to describe the shape of a shoe). Vans’ retro styling, by comparison, felt stale. By the early years of the new millennium, nearly a decade of sustained growth had fallen off—as had customers’ goodwill.
Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo is ready to follow up his incredibly popular vans sale herren vault with another full-scale collection that includes six distinct designs. While the sneakers have long been confirmed, today brings a close-up and detailed look at each silhouette a part of the collection just a day before the launch.The most unique design is the seldom-used Vans Mountain Edition with an updated midfoot strap that is sure to send a jolt of energy into the under appreciated silhouette.
Also featured in the drop will be two vans sale old skool Era models in white and red that have alternating color-blocking as far as the Fear of God branding is concerned. The red version comes with premium corduroy panelling that provides a lux aesthetic to the simplistic silhouette. Finally, the Vans Slip-On 147 comes in three colorways with an added midfoot strap as well that houses metallic Fear of God branding.
