Vans is set to release the classic 106 Vulcanized in a few new colors and materials for Spring 2011, and we’ve got a preview. The new 106 sees a few variations: the upper is primarily perforated suede, with a solid suede toe and tongue construction, completed by a leather heel tab. Two design aspects immediately stand out: first, Vans is adding a square leather lace for the 2011 106, proving that that boat shoes and Stefan Janoski are still a movement. And second, is that the several of the 106 offerings are strongly reminiscent of the http://freshnessmag.com/2010/11/29/a-p-c-x-vans-chukka-boots-available-now/”>A.P.C.

Check out all four color combinations after the jump – and notice the matching leather used for the heel and laces of each variation.
