Soak Up The Sun

What’s not to love about California? There’s the sun, the beach, and there are pretty boys and ladies aplenty to set your eyes on. California is pretty much synonymous for catering to the hedonistic lifestyle of LA. Vans is bringin’ something a little different, bringing you closer down south of California where there is a vibe of sophistication and style with their latest slip-ins and kicks.

Vans’ latest kicks and flip flops range comes in a really chic choice of neutral colours like black, beige, and white and while to some these colours are a bore, I am totally jumping over the moon for these colours. Each pair is made with high quality perforated leather and comes with Vans’ classic vulcanized waffle sole.

Vans’ California Collection is available in the ‘Era’ Reissue and ‘Sk8-Hi’ Reissue styles. Interesting fact, the Era model is a lot older than any of us. Designed in 1976, these kicks were inspired by the famous boys of Dogtown, Stacy Peralta and Tony Alva. Another interesting thing to note about the Era Reissue in this new collection is that it is available in ‘Goat’ colour. Come on! That is hilarious!

Moving on, the ‘Sk8-Hi’ was designed in 78′ and its specially designed padded collad adds extra protection for hardcore skaters. Skater or not, we give Vans’ California Collection 2 thumbs up because unlike other garish looking kicks, this collection really looks sophisticated and chic – even it’s ‘Goat’ that you prefer most.

The Era Reissue is available in white, Bungee Cord and Goat colour at RM289. The SK8-HI Reissue is available in black and Bungee Cord for RM349 all Vans Concept Stores (One Utama & Sunway Pyramid) and authorized Vans dealers at Original Classic & Krookz Berjaya Times Square. For more info log on to
