The last time we covered a VANS Switchback was for the Spring Summer 2011 collection; which probably isn’t on anyone’s mind right now. With snow hitting 49 of 50 states in the US this week (a volcano in Hawaii got some snow!), these new versions of the Switchback in nubuck leather are more seasonally appropriate. This release sees two colors of the shoe; with either a black upper or a loden earth toned upper. The black version has copper eyelets too, for a interesting look, and both feature a pebbled leather heel cuff. Vans California line typically reincarnates classic shoes from the VANS stable, and uses upgraded materials, nicer leathers, and typically sets the design benchmark a bit higher. These are now exception, with a well put-together appearance, that maintains classic Vans style. Available now from EXTRA BUTTER. Check out both colors after the jump.
