When Vans California dropped a trio of Authentic Decons back in June for their ‘Buck Pack’, we wondered what this subtle suede trio might look like with gum soles.  We have something of an answer in this new Vans Authentic CA ‘Gumsole Pack’, a trio of canvas pairs this time that uses the same color on its upper to set off the aforementioned gum bottoms with a foxing stripe contrast.  Red, blue and green colorways cover the primary shades of light and represent the season well, so check out some additional images below, then pick up a pair from MIA.

When it comes to sneakers, Bruce Lee is most strongly connected with Onitsuka Tiger, but his name comes up any time a yellow/red colorway connects with that Game of Death vibe.  A few months after that BAIT collaboration on the Tiger OGs, we see the martial arts film star celebrated in the most overt way yet: his face is all over these new Vans by Supreme.  Supreme x Vans Sk8-His and Authentics add the iconic figure’s photos to their sides, and it looks like they’ll be dropping before year’s end, so be sure to check back with Sneaker News for release info after you’ve seen more below.
