Vans-Rata-Vulc-Sneaker-01

When you picture a pair of Vans you have a certain image that pops into your head. It’s kind of like thinking about an Ed Hardy shirt only way, way better.  We’re going to ask you to suspend that thought and take a glance at this pair of Vans Rata Vulc Sneakers. Yeah, they are not what you were thinking. Sure, they share the same simplistic color design as the classic that made the brand popular but they now, for one, feature laces. Hey, this is a big jump for a company that’s been successful with one standard slip-on. If you want a slightly less casual summer shoe option this is a safe bet and they won’t leave your feet super sweaty like a pair of desert boots. The woven royal hemp uppers are paired with the classic Vans sole and, if you think you can, you could even dare to rock the reds.
