For Holiday 2017, Vans presents the Embossed Sidewall Pack, a six-piece capsule made up of reimagined versions of the Authentic and Old Skool. The former takes on new heights as the Authentic Platform 2.0, featuring a raised sidewall in tonal black with vertical ridged detailing that's reminiscent of a traditional creeper. Finished with d-ring lacing, the shoe is available in two all-over suede executions, as well as a blend of black suede and leopard printed canvas. The Old Skool, meanwhile, offers an ode to punk styling with tonal embossed studs on the sidewall. It comes in three patent leather colorways -- blanc de blanc, chili pepper and all black -- with a tonal matte leather Sidestripe. The Embossed Sidewall Pack is available now at Vans retail stores and
