A surge in menswear building over the past five years means traditional styles like buck shoes are at an all time high. The timing is perfect with a confluence of cultural forces, the kind of thing that has Brooks Brothers offering a $450 Great Gatsby buck. But at that price, you could buy two pairs of each colorway from this new pack of Vans Authentics and still have money for extra laces, as the original Van Doren deck shoe borrows burgundy, tan and navy pig suede uppers and waxed laces to resemble the classic style in question (but why not go for gum on the soles?). Have a closer look at the Vans California ‘Buck Pack’ below the jump and keep your eyes peeled because they’ll be arriving for the fall 2013 season.
