This one retains the suede and canvas upper you know and love, but it’s the details that differ
Porter-Yoshida & Co. isn’t shy with collaborations — even less so, recently, as it celebrated 85 years in business. Vans Vault is the Japanese label’s latest partner, lending its most iconic skate models for a utilitarian makeover, and you don’t get more classic than a black Old Skool.
This one retains the suede and canvas upper you know and love, but it’s the details that differ. Matte graphics from Vans’ archives features beneath the side stripes, which tear away to reveal Porter’s signature accenting orange hue. That vibrancy continues onto the lining and waffle tread, and the pair is completed with skate-inspired checkerboard laces.
