Vans says their new “Graph blends our classic Era design language with cutting edge construction techniques & modern materials,” though some sneakerheads have noted it might be closer to an Era x Old Skool hybrid. That assertion has even more credence when you examine how the classic Era plimsoll look has been applied to this fellow LXVI design to an even greater degree. In fact, the tagline for the new Vans Variable is ‘Modernized Era styling,’ a reference to the fact that this relatively traditional LXVI build is in fact the closest thing to a classic Off the Wall design that we’ve seen from this new tech-oriented capsule. The Variable’s split rear means we can suggest even more color and material combinations than classic CVOs like the Era, so click through to see what’s in store and grab yours straight from Vans.
