The full grain nubuck vamp and overlays of this Sk8-Hi Zip CA of the Vans California Collection define a look of their own that transitions from season to season in fresh and unusual color variations for fall. In combination with a denim and native discharge print lining and a two-tone outsole, the overall design direction is defined as one of detail and depth. The iconic Vans sidestripe comes in a high-grade cow suede that maintains a sophisticated material theme together with a YKK chrome metal zipper and zipper pull with a knotted leather pull cord, flat cotton laces, and a woven Vans label.
The Authentic CA of the Vans California Collection makes for fertile ground to shine a light on the intricate and richly colored patterns and texture of an imported Prima Visione fabric, woven in Italy, that sets this heritage Vans silhouette apart in a class of its own. Special flat eyelets with a folded edge and a framing canvas binding maintain the attention to detail that characterizes this Authentic CA design. Waxed, round cotton laces and a pigskin Vans label complement the look, while a plush synthetic suede lining provides casual comfort.
