The people at Vans California have reissued a couple of new colorways for their classic Old Skool sneaker. Together, the two shows form the “Vansguard” pack, and appropriate (if still a little bit goofy) name given the shoe’s emphasis on durability.
The Vans California “Vansguard” Old Skool Reissues come in two different colors – white and dark grey – and both colorways are equipped with a special chemical coating that is supposed to keep dirt and other pollutants off of the shoes’ duck canvas uppers. The uppers rest on top of a sole of vulcanized rubber, with tonal stitching and laces completing the shoes’ visual impression.
You can see both the white and grey Vans California “Vansguard” Old Skool colorways in the gallery up at the top of the page. If you like the way they look, both the shoes seen above are available now from select Vans retailers, including this one, where these shoes are priced at $70 each.
