Alexander Lee Chang is known for infusing sneakers with utilitarian elements. After last winter’s Sk8-Hi ‘BOA System’, the Japanese brand is now reworking the iconic Vans Era silhouette, and it’s unlike anything that you’ve seen before!Featuring an ultra clean design with waterproof nylon and neppy suede in black, the collaborative Era is lined with eVent technology for the ultimate breathing experience without compromising on weather resistance. Down below, you’ll find the signature vulcanised midsole for comfort that’s made for the half pipe, and of course, a chunky magnetic buckle makes its presence known, made by Germany’s Fidlock. Simple yet extremely secure, the Alexander Lee Chang x Vans Era is only available in Japan, but a European release could be in the works, so make sure you keep it locked for potential release info!
