The Vans Era silhouette has already been appropriated for use in countless themed releases, but this latest one puts a new twist on the idea of ‘repurposing’. Coming courtesy of the California collection, these new Repurposed Era lowtops are constructed of post-consumer materials like surplus Army bags and vintage denim overalls. The result is a couple of Urban Outfitters exclusive releases that have an undeniable rugged charm and some serious 1 of 1 appeal thanks to irregularities in the material stock. Check out olive and denim pairs after the jump, let us know which looks best and if you can think of another pre-used material that’d make for a dope sneaker design.
