Vans beat every other sneaker brand to the boat shoe, and though Michael Jordan and Tinker Hatfield might have something to say about it, they were the first to embrace wingtip styling on their classics as well. Off the Wall has been embellishing their styles with brogue perforations for years now, and the latest effort broadens the base with a couple of new silhouettes in use. The Vans California Era ‘Brogue’ was established early in the FA12 season and gets a new all-red leather getup to coincide with the release of black Slip-Ons and Switchbacks. These are expected in stores next month and you can see more photos below, then be sure to check back with Sneaker News for all the latest vans drops.
