The Vans California Collection introduces the 31, a retro-inspired classic that features simple tooling and a lifestyle-ready appeal. That seems to be the basic formula for Vans’ off-skate labels and the success its experienced (thanks to the help of some great releases of the Chukka Del Barco and Switchback) isn’t much of a surprise, and as it continues that formula with the Vans California 31, we just might have another classic on our hands. Take for example these two new colorways; both feature suede uppers with yellow accents at the heel and toe. Both can be purchased at select Vans California retailers like David Z in Manhattan, NYC, so check them out below and let us know what you think. via RonnieFieg.
