Vans has truly pulled out all the stops for their Fall 2013 California collection, as made evident by the latest announcement, this Mesa 79, a mid-top “sneaker” that pays homage to the desert boots of World War II, boots that have come to be some of the most popular in the street-wear world. Comprised of a leather upper accented via a canvas side panel, this bold look sees two colorways, a light brown/olive and a dark brown/red, both of which are equally striking. These Mesa 79′s won’t hit shelves ’til July, but you can pre-order them now online. More photos after the jump.
The newest from Asics, these Gel-Lyte III’s receive a new yet retro look via a striking white, purple and yellow colorway. The classic combo of suede and mesh is played off nicely on this pair, where Asics uses it as an opportunity for some unique color-blocking. The front section in suede is in the purple, as is the side and heel section, while the toe-box is in the classic white mesh. Yellow accents the collar, heel and of course the unique split tongue. This bold look won’t be hitting shelves til next month, but you can pre-order yours now. More photos after the jump.

The pairing of these two leathers (lets not forget that though these are dubbed “leather and nubuck” that nubuck is in fact a type of leather) takes two-tone color blocking to an interesting new level. These low-top beauties are offered in green and black, but they share a common shade of orange via the smooth leather toe-box. Both are also accented in white via the logo, laces and midsole. These Road STA’s are an interesting addition to the A Bathing Ape lineup, and are sure to fly off shelves. These are available now, so be sure to make your way over and cop them now.

The latest offering from adidas’ Blue collection, the Leopard Pack features a bold take on three classic adidas silhouettes. Draped in bold new designs, the Tech Super, Match Play and AO Hookshot barely resemble their former selves. The Tech Super and AO Hookshot take a little bit of a toned down approach to leopard, using a monocrhomatic look as well as just an accent of leopard, while the Match Play goes full on, giving you your daily dose of Leopard print via an entirely Leopard printed upper. All three of these will be hitting shelves in September, but you can make your pre-order now. More photos after the jump.
