The Vans Vault Snake pack has been slowly slithering its way into retailers, with the next model on the way being the Vans Switchback in both a sleek black and burnt brown colorway. The animal print motif has been big this year, with Vans picking it up on several occasions, but these pairs keep it pretty low key with the snakeskin hitting just around the ankle area. Equally impressive as the reptilian look are the super smooth leathers that constitute the uppers here. Follow us after the jump to check out both pairs and let us how these place amongst the other Switchback variations we’ve seen as of late. via GLLTN

Vans Switchback CA Water Resistant – Available

November 18th, 2011 by | No comments

vans switchback ca water resistant available 1 Vans Switchback CA Water Resistant   Available

The name ‘switchback’ comes from the original Swithcback Railway at Coney Island that opened in 1884 as America’s first real roller coaster.  How ‘real’ it really was depends on your perspective, as the ride got its name from the fact that the linear track required empty cars to be pulled back to their starting point after a white-knuckle 6mph ride.  So while the Vans California Switchback has a considerably more modern feel than anything from the 19th century, they do indeed have the kind of timeless style that could keep these in the Off the Wall rotation for years to come.  The same can also be said of your personal collection, these new duckboot-leaning water-resistant pairs offering the promise of warm and dry feet despite your environment.  Peruse more angles on the latest boot-inspired sneakers from Vans after the jump and look for them at select retailers like DQM.

Vans California Switchback – Holiday 2011 Colorways

September 27th, 2011 by | 2 comments

vans ho 2011 Switchback ca Vans California Switchback   Holiday 2011 Colorways

The thing about Vans’ relatively simple skate and casual designs is that, unless you go absolutely insane with clashing colors or get lazy rehashing past hits, almost everything you do to these silhouettes is going to look good.  A prime example of this is the latest set of Vans California Switchback boots, a trio that you’ll find yourself switching back and forth on which one’s your favorite, because they’re all just that good.  The two-toned navy and tan pair evokes images of a duckboot, which is appropriate given that these are fully waterproof, but it’s a blocked look that slowly sublimates from the tonal grey joints into an all-black edition that gets its contrast from the textures of varying leather tumbles plus a nylon mudguard.  Click through to see all three pairs and expect these on October 1st at Vans California retailers.  via FNG
