With examples like these Chukka Bardenas LX from VANS Vault, it is difficult to distinguish between a pair of sneakers and proper shoes these days. Picking up design hints from bespoke-style shoes, VANS Vault turned their classic Chukkas into a premium piece using black suede and coffee leathers on the uppers. Cut off leather also evokes thoughts of craftsmanship, while leather shoe laces do their part to separate these shoes from ordinary sneakers. A new last achieves a slimmer silhouette and the leather VANS tags finish off the footwear. Both models are available right now at DQM and VANS Vault accounts across the globe.
