Vans Core – Stage 4 Gilbert Crockett Low (Spring 2012)

Developed in collaboration with Gilbert Crockett, Chima Ferguson, Chris Pfanner and Andrew Allen, the Stage 4 has a pretty original design, while remaining faithful to the classic Vans styling.  Constructed in some premium looking tumbled leather and suede, with square leather laces, and seen here in the burgundy colorway.  The main feature of this model is the sole: the “Wafflecup”, or a hybrid vulcanized Waffle Sole between the traditional and the modern cupsole.  Designed for skaters, by skaters, this newer model from Vans will be offered in a low as well as a mid version, due out this January.  As more info comes along, we will be sure to pass it on to y’all.
