Yes, it's miserable, cold and windy at the moment but fear not: spring is on the way.
And it's being heralded with the release of this new Vintage Sunfade pack from Vans' California imprint. It consists of the Old Skool Reissue CA and the Sk8-Hi Reissue CA which have been sulphur-dyed and stonewashed in mellow grey, plum, mint, red and 'chinchilla' tones. The classic sidestripes have been removed in mock-aging fashion giving that worn-in look.
While pre-faded items can sometimes come off a bit naff, these strike just the right 'used' balance without trying too hard; you can also look down at your feet and try and convince yourself that the sun has been shining down on you for the last few months.
You can buy now at select Vans California accounts and online.
