A sneaker whose Theseusian presentation suggests they could be a valid teaching aid for philosophy 101, the California Collection’s Vans Era Decon returns for the second half of 2013. Eras were initially crafted as a more padded alternative to the Authentic, so when you strip out said padding, is that not the same as going back from #95 to #44? Vans CA would beg to differ, and with the results on these three new releases, it’s hard to argue with their reasoning. Two of them are two-toned like the last drop, which leaves the third to explore a watercolor camouflage print whose earthy tones make it one of the most wearable shoes you’ll find for the fall season. Take a closer look after the jump and find yours at select Vans California retailers.
