AlexanderLeeChang × VANS「FD ERA」 ¥30800

The base model used is Era which is synonymous with old school skate shoes. Incorporating eVent, a high performance material often used in outdoor wear as the lining, they have realized a model with excellent comfort that is also resistant to rain and snow while also maintaining breathability.

This is the first time they have installed a FIDLOCK that locks magnetically.

Additionally it is equipped with a new generation FIDLOCK system that negates the need for shoelaces. It is pioneering technology that can easily be fastened by using magnets and it’s the first time it’s been used in Vans history. The tongue of the shoe is thicker than base model and adds extra comfort.

Unique details that extend even to the double names on the box.

This brand new collaboration has been dubbed by the designer himself as a “high tech low tech Vans Era”. The design is unique which even extends to the box and is a must have for fans of both brands. Unlike the base Era shoe it is highly functional and equally at home being used as part of outdoor gear.
