mesa 79-fall 2013-vans california_03

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.
