Vans Harkens Back To U.S. Railroad Workers With These Sneakers

Vans has always had a knack for creating nostalgic clothing. The culturally-driven company is known for regularly reaching back into its archives — gathering inspiration, reference materials, and ideas from defining moments throughout history. Now, the proprietor has revealed an interesting take on America’s blue-collar heritage with the Mt. Vernon shoe collection.

The Mt. Vernon Collection utilizes three of the company’s most iconic shoes — the Sk8-Hi, Era, and Slip-On — each dressed in rustic hickory striped denim reminiscent of the staples worn by mid-century automotive and railroad workers. The brand’s classic silhouettes help to convey an even greater feeling of authenticity, calling upon contrasting shades, colors, and stripes to illustrate the era’s stylistic underpinnings. As always, the Sk8-Hi, Era, and Slip-On are foundationally sound, offering buyers a tailored aesthetic that’s also exceptionally durable, thanks to the brand’s defined white gum accents and waffle soles. The Mt. Vernon Collection is available now via select in-store and online retailers for $70+.

Purchase: $70+
