Upscale retailer Barneys New York has teamed up with Vans for a luxurious take on the Slip On Classic. Using premium, full grain leathers, their designers took a woven approach to the ubiquitous checkerboard pattern which really breathed life into the Classic silhouette. The alternating suede and smooth leather pattern reminds us of the Engineered Garments approach to their Slip Ons, but really pairs well with the classic design. The pair will be available in two colorways, black/white and royal blue/black. Barneys chose each color to represent both brands legacy. A stripeless white midsole and dual branded sock liner finish off the pairs.
The Barneys New York x Vans Slip On "Sole Series" will be available Thursday, August 20th, in store as well as online at Barneys.com. They will retail for $165.
