For Holiday 2017, Vans confers a premium material update on two classic silhouettes, the Old Skool and Slip-On, both of which take on fuzzy suede uppers that recall the vintage look of '70s skate styling. The Old Skool will be available in three retro-inspired colorways -- Medal Bronze, Birch and Ballad Blue -- all finished with cotton laces, a Marshmallow midsole and a white suede side stripe. The accompanying two Slip-On colorways, meanwhile, are color-blocked to showcase matching vamp and heel panels accented with quarter panels in varying blue shades. The kicks can be purchased now at Vans retail stores and
