For about a year and a half now, the Vans OTW Collection has been satisfying shoppers with a unique blend of skate-inspired aesthetics and lifestyle-oriented casual comfort. The Vans OTW Bedford is arguably the most successful of the bunch, a midtop somewhere between the Half Cab and a strapless Mountain Edition that’s been released with each seasonal grouping and even in a couple of collaborations. The Bedford’s back for the winter months with two new suede editions, one in black and another split between grey and burgundy. Also offering a two-toned approach is the Ludlow lowtop in a downright stately mix of wool and vegetarian leather, and all three pairs are yours for the taking now from select Vans retailers including Michigan’s Premier.
