Kim Kiroic has been a big name in the Chinese shoemaking market for a few years now. This marks the first time he’s reached outside the premium brands in the immdiate vicinity of his HQ, as we see the Shanghai-based cobbler hook up with the American brand synonymous with California cool. The Vans by KIROIC collection starts out (and ends?) with three Vans Eras in black leather with ornate embroidered toes. This makes for another fine example of Vans pushing the envelope during a period when we’ve come to expect eye-catching patterns, so have a closer look below and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.
