Vans return with a burst of colour for Spring 2017, introducing three new Authentics. The Vans Authentic skate shoe has been an iconic silhouette in the sneaker game since its original debut in 1976, hosting key features that gives a Vans sneaker its essence such as a waffle outsole, durable canvas upper, metal eyelets and of course the Vans flag label on the heel of the midsole.
Keeping the iconic silhouette of this classic skate shoe it has been given a fresh makeover just in time for Spring and Summer. The durable canvas has been given a washed out effect cooling down the heat of the bright colourways. White stitching highlights the key panels off the upper complimented alongside with white laces cutting clean against the bold backdrop pleasingly. Vans branding tab sits on top of white stitching under the emphasised white metal lace eyelets. Branding placement is followed up on the heel of the midsole with the renowned Vans label, all branding in dark shade of navy. The vibrant upper is sat upon the classic thick gum midsole which couples perfectly with all three shades of colour. The classic waffle sole patterns the outsole of the sneaker.
The colourway of this triplet collection puts the task of brightening your summer wardrobe at ease. The sneaker is available in three colourways. Citrus is one of the three colourways which is named perfectly to portray the zesty orange shade which is very striking and compliments the gum sole and white commendably. Blue Radiance is a fresh and cooling shade of a mint blue a perfect shade for a festival or holiday look. The final colourway is Cherry Tomato which is a ripe shade of red a warming colour to go with a smart casual outfit for sunny day activities.
My favourite out of the collection is the Citrus. I think this colourway couples best with white highlights and gum sole of the sneaker. This colour has many potential outfit pairings and would be a great choice for many social occasions such as holidays, festivals and garden parties.
