A timeless classic, the Era has been a staple in the Vans collection since 1976 when it became the world's first skateboarding shoe. Working closely with Tony Alva's original design, Carhartt WIP and Vans Syndicate have produced an interesting special edition for 2013.
The Era Tab "S" utilises reflective materials to compliment the simple Syndicate design with the addition of subtle zigzag reinforcement, signature waffle soles, canvas heel piece and an embossed Carhartt logo leather tab on the vamp.
This exclusive collaboration will be available in basic black, vibrant blue, orange and yellow from tomorrow in Carhartt WIP stores around the world and in limited numbers online.
