Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy loves his skate shoes, that's for sure. In the past, he and Vans have worked together on the Sk8-Hi, the Old Skool and the signature slip-on. The two continue their ongoing partnership for spring/summer 2016, putting a little twist on the classic Authentic model and offering more colorways this time around any of their previous collaborations.

The four pair lineup consists of two more basic white and black styles, and brighter options with "Tea Rose" and "Aqua Sea" colorways. Each pair in the collection comes with a blacked-out midsole, the typical cotton canvas upper, and the Russian designer's name at the heel written in Cyrillic. I think you'd be making a major mistake if you didn't opt for one of the two colorful options, as the white and black pairs resemble a fairly typical Vans apart from the Gosha signature at the back. 

No matter which color catches your eye most, the sneakers are available right now at Dover Street Market for $145 each
