Look, the last time Vans and Diemme got together it was magical. The heritage Italian brand makes all its footwear in Montebelluna, Italy. (That translates to “Beautiful Moon Mountain.” What’s more hardcore and poetic than that?) Diemme uses only the most exquisite leathers to bring classic Vans into a whole new realm of opulence.
Now the brands have done it again. This time it’s the Era, instead of the Sk8 Hi, keeping the OG styling and ratcheting up the quality to as high as it can go. The “Bordeaux” pair is as dark a brown leather as one can get without quite hitting black. The “Yellow” is rich in both hue and the plush of the suede. Both pairs feature leather lining and the signature Italian flag ribbon sewn into the heel.
If you want to keep that invincible Vans style but only want the top quality, these are for you. Bow’s and Arrows Berkeley has them right now.
