It was arguably the Vans version that set off a chain reaction of chukka-infused lifestyle sneakers in recent years, and fitting that we see this newest pack elevated to the peak of premium construction. The Vans Vault Chukka Bardenas LX offers a new approach to building this classic silhouette, many of the design’s key lines removed in favor of a subtler luxe leather getup that’d have a ‘deconstructed’ look if the material weren’t as nice. Pairs in all black and coffee/gum will easily pass as a more traditional casual shoe for dress code purposes, and both are available now from select Vans Vault stockists like Westwood’s Hot Rod.
