The latest sneaker style to come from Vans is here and it's built for adventure – introducing the City TRL.

Everyone needs to own a pair of Vans. Whether it's a classic pair of Old-Skools or a comfy pair of Authentics, this streetwear brand is known for creating iconic sneakers to suit all kinds of tastes and styles. Now, there's another shoe to add to your rotation, but it's built for adventure. Introducing the City TRL – a sneaker designed for any terrain and built to go against any kind of element. If you live an active outdoor lifestyle, you need to get your hands on a pair of these.

Release date: It's available right now in the US, so we don't think it will take too long to reach the Australian store.

Price: Approximately $163

Where to shop: Vans, but we also expect it to reach stockists like THE ICONIC and Platypus Shoes.

The City TRL is a heavy-duty silhouette, drawing inspiration from natural and urban environments. It promises all-day comfort, with a new form of technology called SmartRubber. This rubber forms the slip-resistant outsole that is ideal for maximising grip, making it a great option for all-terrain. There's a blend of mixed material on the upper, including suede and textile, with mesh panelling and minimal branding. From first look, you can't actually tell these are a pair of Vans so it's definitely something different for the streetwear label.

What colourways can you get your hands on? At this stage, there are three styles to choose from and they are called Grape Leaf, Turtledove and Black.
