Arriving as part of an exclusive collaboration with Los Angeles-based skate shop Lotties, these military red Vans Era Pro fuse heritage styling and contemporary flair through one unique profile. With mixed-matched uppers constructed from durable canvas across the midfoot and with butter-smooth suede across the contrasting-coloured khaki brown toe vamp, this low-profile skate shoe pays active homage to the OG Era’s from ‘76. Vans’ iconic PopCush sockliner provides reinforced cushioning where it’s needed, whilst the solid DURACAP rubber underlays pair well with the original Waffle tread-pattern across the base of the crisp-white outsole for added traction, resilience and grip. Single foxing tape wraps around the entirety of the design keeping structural integrity in mind, while the reinforced white-track stitching across high-stress points provides a strengthened sense of wear when paired with any active setting. Custom insoles designed by shop-owner Mike Gigliotti add a touch of artistic flair to the design, with the jet-black laces across the 5-white eyelets, the debossed ‘Lotties’ tonal decals across each heel counter and the iconic ‘Vans’ tab across the exterior sidewall signing these upgraded Era Pro sneakers off with corresponding trims to match its capsule collection Sk8-Hi Pro sibling.
An ode to the ‘first real skate shoe’ created by Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, these old-school inspired Era Pro shoes combine artistic ingenuity with skate-specific functionality. Capturing the free-flowing spirit of Gigliotti’s home-grown skate shop Lotties and Vans’ iconic strive for performance perfection, this exclusive collaboration puts self-expression and unique individuality at the forefront of creative venture.
