So this may be a stretch, but this pair of Vans Classics is, as you can see, of the Original Slip-On variety. The hard part is figuring out where Japanese powerhouse UNITED ARROWS fits into the equation. If UNITED ARROWS x Vans = these, where is the UNITED ARROWS? So, math was never my forte, but on closer inspection you can see that UA have taken a Kanye-esque minimalistic approach to collaboration and have, instead of brashly branding (think 24 kilates) these classics they have merely taken a great shoe and colorway and twisted it just enough to where they’ve been updated to fit into current fashion. The addition of the leather insole adds a touch of elegance, and overall this is still a killer pair of kicks. If you wanna feel for yourself what these are all about head straight to UNITED ARROWS and cop a pair, but first… More photos after the jump.
