In discussing the California collection’s Era Decon lowtop last week, we noted that once you strip out enough of that model’s distinctive padding, you end up with a design almost indistinguishable from the Authentic. Here are a couple of new pairs that more equitably split the difference, as the Vans Era Lo Pro finds a middle ground between ‘Era as Authentic’ and the classic ankle-padded design. Pewter/henna and purple/dune colorways both also feature a slightly thinner waffle sole to complete the low-profile look, and you’ll find both available now at select Off the Wall retailers including the DQM for Vans General.
