Vans has been dropping many pairs recently which seriously push the brand to new thresholds, the latest pack no exception. Coming to us from Vans Japan, we are presented with the Whirlpool Pack featuring the Era, Rowan, and Half Cab. Arriving in monochrome colors the 3-pack is dressed in lovely suedes to emphasize the luxurious nature of the pack.
For starters we look at the Era Pro, this time dressed in a Marine suede with a Black Rubber sole. The pair includes metal eyelets and a leather lining to provide a durable yet luxurious feel for the wearer. The Rowan Pro hits us with a bright Ochre suede, including a premium debossed version of their Circle V logo on a leather heel panel. With fewer metal eyelets and a plush toweled lining, this pair is rounded off with a Black outsole as well. Completing the pack is the Half Cab Pro, a mid-top model that arrived in a Purple-washed suede. Branded on the tongue and the lateral panels is the Half Cab label. Adding to the toweled lining, this silhouette is also rounded out with a Black sole. All 3 pairs feature White stitching, creating a well-considered contrast together with Black laces, lining & soles.
With the Era Pro and Half Cab Pro already available at a few select retailers, it seems the Rowan will be a little harder to come by. The retail prices are expected to be between ¥9,000 and ¥12,000, roughly $85 – $115 in USD. As always stay locked into Nice Kicks for the latest sneaker news from around the world!
