The weather’s pretty dreary this week so for our product of the week this week we’ve gone for something a little bit more vibrant.
We give to you, the Era 59 Van Doren in Tribal Black.
The limited edition Van Doren Era 59 for Holiday makes itself known with its distinctive tribal inspired print, somewhat also reminiscent of Artist Keith Haring’s work. Bright Tribal prints are strong right now and with contrast eyelets, laces and foxing a pair of these would definitely help you forget about the darker days and nights. The Van Doren Era 59 is also available in Tribal Blue, which you can see here alongside our extensive range on the Slam website, or pop into store to see the full range (we have this shoe in small sizes too).
An update on the classic Era, the Era 59 gets a few cleaner touches, such as the leather heel label at the back of the shoe. The original Era is a popular skate shoe based on the Vans Authentic. The Authentic has great board feel and the choice of colours means that it is a pretty versatile shoe for skating, however being canvas and quite thin, they needed something with the same board feel, that was a little bit stronger, and born was the Era! The Era gained a leather-lined padded collar around the ankle for more protection and stability and reinforced stitching throughout the upper to provide a more reliable skate shoe.
Pop into the Vans Basement to try a pair, and if you buy instore we’re giving away some exclusive free gifts with every purchase.
