Parra is the go-to name in footwear collaborators right now. Though the early-2010 Air Max 1 he designed wasn’t the first shoe he designed with a major brand and probably not his last, he may never top the hype garnered by that shoe. Vans has released this group of Authentics that look oddly similar to the collaboration pack the artist designed in 2009, possibly in attempt to capitalize on the attention anything he touches is receiving.
The first pair utilizes a blue canvas build with pink and white highlights throughout–very similar to the Authentics Parra designed. Other color combos include two tones of purple against blue, black with pink and blue and finally, a white pair that also uses those accents.
