Vans ID Velvet Eras: Everything you need to know
Get a look at the boujee new sneakers that are set to up your weekend game.
The sneaker trend has been going strong for a while now and, though we don't want to see it go anywhere, we are ready to see something a little different. Luckily, streetwear label Vans has been thinking along the same lines and has come up with two new pairs of ridiculously luxe kicks.
Part of the Vans ID collection, the latest Vans drop sees the classic Era silhouette reimagined with a crushed velvet upper. Arriving in both a black and a scarlet Chilli Pepper colourway, each new pair features black soles, black laces and lining to match the upper.
In case all of that wasn't quite extra enough, the brand has also thrown in some chunky gold decorative sneaker jewellery that's giving us serious flashbacks to the 90s. The gothic-type charms link onto the outer laces of each shoe, spelling out the Vans brand name. Groovy.
When and where can you shop the Eras?
The Vans ID crushed velvet Eras have already dropped onto the Vans US site, meaning that it shouldn't be too long until they appear on the Vans Australian site, as well as in usual Vans stockists like Platypus Shoes. The sneakers are currently retailing for US$70 (around AUD$100), which is the standard pricing for the Era model.
The crushed velvet Eras join two pairs of Slip-Ons to make up the ID collection. The new classic Slip-Ons feature leather uppers, an ID chain, padded collars, elastic side accents and signature rubber waffle outsoles. They also arrive in both black and Chilli Pepper red colourways and retail for US$70.
The ID Slip-Ons are also yet to be released in Australia, though we would wager that they'll be out within the next few weeks. You can check them out below.
