United Arrows continues to assert itself in the collaborative sneaker arena, this time hooking up with history’s most successful skateboarding brand. These United Arrows x Vans Slip-Ons are just as elegant as you’d expect from the Japanese fashion brand while keeping their California cool essence, using a black canvas upper with leather insoles for that premium touch. These are available now in Japan but might not make it to US retailers, so take a closer look and let us know if you’ll try to import a pair.
@EvilRamen Real talk. It's just a standard slip on with a small leather patch on the insole. Now if it had calf leather lining, or something along those lines, that would make it seem luxurious. Instead, this just comes off as typical shit fashion houses sell for double or triple, just because of the name. It's like those bape trucker hats that are likely made in the same factory as trucker hats made to be sold at Wal-Mart.
