Vans has been pushing the pattern boundaries as of late, and this latest “Nordic” look for the 106 Era Hi is a fine example of such behavior. Featuring a blue suede upper, this pair of “sneakers” gets a lot of boot like touches, from the eyelets to the laces and even the durable sole, this pair of kicks is truly intriguing. The Nordic pattern around the ankle is a subtle yet intense twist that will catch an eye or two. If you’re feeling these for the colder months ahead, don’t wait, head over and cop a pair now. More photos after the jump.
