In terms of Vans exclusives, it certainly feels as if BILLY’S TOKYO is hogging some of the best, with rereleases of old models arriving by way of true collaboration and a whole batch of celebrators takes confined exclusively to their Japan-based walls. And though they surely have more in store for the upcoming decade, they have on close-out for 2019 dressed up appropriately in Christmas themes. Vault constructions lend to the overall quality of both the forthcoming Sk8-Hi and Era, whose toolings are of the same lore though interpreted just a bit differently. The high-top is arguably the loudest of the small capsule, boasting sultry reds at its canvas base and jazz stripes of a jolly green. warm-tinged brown suedes seat the rest of the overalys with candy cane laces rounding off with playful expression. These very same details — save for the extra bit of color — translates over to the low as well, with a full covering of the hairy textured seeing to the same blacked out sole units and confectionery inspirations. Grab a good look at both silhouettes right here and find them releasing only overseas come December 7th.
