Vans California Chukka “Guate”
Sneaker packs and other nicknames offer a helpful way of remembering our favorite releases, but there are a select few instances when the nomenclature just adds to the confusion. Somewhere in the middle is a release like Vans California’s latest, a model whose name does indeed describe its construction, but was also used earlier this year on another style.

This one’s on tap for a fourth quarter release and you can see more after the jump below; how do they compare to the impressive range of patterned styles we’ve seen from Off the Wall this year (or last year’s ‘Nordic’ Chukka CA, for that matter)?
