Spot on for the urban bohemian, VANS has released a new Baskets Rata Vulc low-top sneaker with a chukkah and boat shoe twist. The Rata Vulc is ecologically minded with a 100% royal hemp upper and recycled rubber sole construction. The shoes feature a moccasin toe like boat shoes but the lace panels fold over like a chukkah. The kicks come in a city perfect black and more casual shades such as khaki and red. These new Rata Vulc epitomizes VANS’ California roots with an unadorned, minimal style which speaks to the effortlessly stylish guy who spends time roaming the city and contributing to a greater cause rather than pondering over his wardrobe. The shoes are now available at retailers such as studiohomme for the simple man who wants a good pair of shoes free of environmental repercussions for the summer.
