Vans California releases a triad of gum sole-adorned Era 59 models, as well as a leather Sk8-Hi Zip for their latest summer drop. The Era 59 "Gum Sole" Collection features three colorways: Ochre Red/Gum, Dress Blue/Gum, and Beetle/Gum. All come furbished with thick high-quality suede and equipped with a full gum midsole. Details such as zig-zag textured leather heel tabs, tortoise shell eyelets, woven rope laces, and tonal stitching solidifies the remarkable quality of this Era 59 trio. Releasing in tandem is the Vans California Sk8-Hi Zip "Varsity Stripe" - Eclipse Navy, presented with a rich premium leather navy upper atop a white rubber midsole. Contrast white stitching exposes the significant construction of this silhouette, as well as matches the white leather formstripe and flat cotton laces. Red suede detailing is used for the rear zipper tab, while the liner is coated in a navy and white varsity stripe print. The Vans CA Era 59 "Gum Sole" Collection is available now at Kith Manhattan, the Vans CA Sk8-Hi Zip "Varsity Stripe" - Eclipse Navy is available now at both Kith NYC locations, and all are available now online at KithNYC.com.
