Just as they led the way for sneaker brands to experiment with chukkas, boat shoes and some more formal styles, Vans was the first mainstream label to add wingtip detailing including brogue perforations on their designs. It’s a look that’s been picked up by plenty of others (especially Nike) as a way of conveying premium quality and timeless style, and these new Vans California Era Brogue lowtops are a perfect example of both. These go a step further to underline the elegant vibe with golden brown leather heels and laces, and both the navy/brown and grey/black styles are available now straight from Vans.
