Tapping the deep archives of Anaheim’s very own Vans, Billy’s Tokyo presents the colorful BESS NI silhouette: a reinterpretation rooted in 90s heritage though doused in a styling that could easily be mistaken for Frankenstein’s monster. A sort of mix between vintage legends and the still iconic Old Skool, the pairs — which are set to arrive in a pack of blues, deep reds, black, and a color blocking of yellow and pink — are grounded in a likeness familiar. Waffles soles are still present as ever with uppers pushing textural dichotomy in its half-half mixture of canvas and suede. Outward facing laterals are largely contemporary with overlaid leather Jazz Stripes and a small diagonal checkerboard print block while the medials — which also wrap over to the toe box — push the velvet finish in a fashion much more minimal, preferring outlined hits in contrast stitching. Classic “V” logos are then stamped atop the tongue, signing off on a new school meets old school package. Grab a look at the full set right below and find it arriving exclusively at Billy’s in Japan come August 10th.
