With all the classic styles, updates and new models Vans is releasing these days, a few models are bound to slide into the background. The <a href="http://www.running.uk.com/vans-for-sale/vans-chukka">vans chukka low sale uk</a> is one of these, a model that’s still quietly cranking out new styles but that has kept a relatively lower profile in recent months. This latest rendition gets back to what made this style so popular in the early part of this century, opting for a grey hemp upper atop gum sole for a tastefully neutral look. Check out more images below, then grab yours at shops like Concepts.
Perhaps noticing how many similar custom jobs are popping up these days, Vans offers their first intergalactic sneaker at retail. This <a href="http://www.running.uk.com/vans-authentic/vans-authentic-lo-pro">vans authentic lo pro sale uk</a> takes on the ‘Galaxy’ styling that has been scorching hot since last February’s Foamposite release. The upper is predominately blue with pink and white swirls giving the sense of a stellar sky view, and adds contrast stitching up top but goes all-white on the slimmed-down sole. Check them out up close below, let us know how these compare to the more tech-oriented Galaxy styles from Nike and grab yours today from shops like Inflammable.
Always a favorite fine artist of the sneaker and streetwear scene, Takashi Murakami now brings his unique vision to a set of the <a href="http://www.running.uk.com/">vans shoes uk sale cheap</a>. The perfect canvas (literally) as far as sneakers go for an artistic makeover, the Slip-On is featured in four variations of Murakami’s signature anime-influenced artwork including the “smiling flower” and skull motifs. Each premium construction of the shoe features leather inner lining and heel pad printed with a dog illustration and dual branding. The Takashi Murakami x Vans Vault Slip-On collection drops June 26th at select Vans Vault stockists like UBIQ.
In the United States, the skateboarding and skate sneakers, apparel and accessory sales are largely handled by one huge nationwide mail order catalog-turned-mall retailer and a network of independent mom and pop shops; could the US market support another emerging chain of skateshops? We’re not necessarily expecting Swiss chain Doodah to expand into the States to make a run at CCS’s crown, but it’s clear they’re doing well with nine retail locations and a new Off the Wall collaboration. The Doodah x Vans Chukka Low goes with a relatively rare blocking pattern that sees the vamp done in camel suede save its piping and the eyestay/ankle collar, which comes in for a lighter brown tone. They’ve got the store’s name on the tongue and after you check out more images below you can get them straight from Doodah.
