Influential D.C. hardcore band, Bad Brains, are the subject of Vans latest musical tribute. Blending genres of music and innovating since the late 70’s, Bad Brains have always had their own unique style, now represented by this new Chukka model. The shoe features a tan upper with a gum sole that rises into red, yellow and green stripes, no doubt inspired by the band’s reggae roots and iconic artwork. Their lightning bolt logo appears on the heel and sole as well, and the insoles display a jumble of the band’s logos in various sizes and colors. If that wasn’t enough, two additional sets of laces are included, so you can rep these underappreciated pioneers in the style of your choice. via Hypebeast.
