It's easy to forget that gorgeously tanned surfers with sea breeze tousled hair wear shoes when you watch them ride waves with the easy grace of a dolphin. But when they do need to pace around on dry land, VANS has a surf collection for them that will embody their style on water on physical ground. The Vans Surf Fall 2009 collection features a number of easy kicks based on some casual shoe models both from within and outside the brand. Slip-ons are fur-lined for cozy comfort and the Authentic based kicks get a straw weaved midsoles fit for a nonchalant surfer on land. Other silhouettes include a chukkah boot (also fur-lined) and some no brainer boat shoes. The collection features a darker Fall palette with olives, tan and red with some pops of blue here and there. While we don't always remember that surfers exist beyond the boundaries of sandy beaches, these kicks will get them wandering out there in style-- or get those out there who want to get in the waves to nick the cool surfer dude vibe.
